Zambian FA has now introduced computer-based ticket sales

LUSAKA, (Xinhua) -- Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) on Thursday announced that it had switched to computer-based ticket sales in line with modern trends in football.

FAZ President Andrew Kamanga said the move was also aimed at improving accountability and transparency, adding that the new mode of ticketing was used during an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya last weekend and would be used for the upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria next month.

“The Kenya match last Sunday was the historic first where fans had to purchase tickets through Shoprite stalls countrywide and it is expected this mode of ticket sales shall be used for the upcoming crucial World Cup qualifier against Nigeria on Oct. 9 in Ndola,” he said, according to a statement posted on the association’s website.

He added that in order to help fans to appreciate the system, the advertising and marketing of the match will start early, adding that the association had started implementing measures aimed at maximizing revenue.

According to him, the association identified ticket sales as one area where funds were being siphoned, adding that the move will put to end previous experiences where fans were made to stand in queues to buy tickets, a move that resulted in stampedes in some cases.

Zambia starts her campaign for the 2018 World Cup with a home clash against Nigeria on Oct. 9. Other teams in Group B are Algeria and Cameroon.

The 2012 Africa Cup winners have failed to qualify for next year’s Africa soccer showpiece after a poor qualifying campaign in which the national team finished third in group.
