Lungu appointed new Civo chairman

Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, Lungu said he was very delighted to be appointed as chairman and that Civo fans should expect a lot from him.

“I have been associated with much of the successes of the club. I believe in team work including the players, coaching panel, fans and the executive.

“I know what it takes to build a good team. Fortunately for us we have a very robust executive team. Most of them have good exposure in football, club management and leadership skills,” said Lungu.

The Office of the President and Cabinet as the sponsor of the club has the prerogative to appoint the Chairman, treasurer and secretary of the Civo Football Club executive commitee. The rest of the executive positions are elected.
