On a high and most pronounced note the 2016 Zambia super league kicked off today with wins from super league giants Nkana and Power Dynamos settling the rivals at par with the super league standing for week one. Earlier, in a derby at Arthur Davies Mufulira Blackpool opened the league in an early kick off fixture against lusaka dynamos. the debutantes were greeted with a one null defeat in a match most people saw Blackpool would pull a surprise. but lack of experience costed them the match conceding a goal in the dying minutes of game through a Thomas Mbolela goal in 71st minute.
