“I am pleased and impressed by the maturity that we have shown today considering where we are coming from.

“It is encouraging to see that we have left all the elections-related differences behind and today meaningfully discussed important issues to develop our football. Let us maintain this spirit.

“We have a lot of projects ahead of us and the Football Academy at the Luwinga Centre is the main priority. But we also have a lot of national teams’ activities, local competitions as well as developmental and capacity building.

“We  also introduce competitions at district level to tap talent from the rural areas. Consideration will be taken at the next budget session to look at how best FAM can support district competitions with the view to having a national district champion at the end of every year.

“We have work to do and raising the bar starts now,” he said.
