The National Women’s Football Championship match was postponed on Sunday after incessant rains brought business to a halt as well as rendering the Chiwembe Stadium artificial turf unplayable.

“The FAM National Women’s Championship match between Ntopwa and Evirom, which was scheduled to take place this afternoon (Sunday) at Mpira Stadium has been postponed due to bad weather. The match will be played on Tuesday, 14th March 2022 at the same venue. Kick-off time remains 14:30hours,” reads a statement from the association.

However, it is doubtful that the match will be played on Tuesday as Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services has cautioned that the incessant rains will continue on Tuesday.
