Zesco United and Zanaco clash again this time in the curtain-raiser to the 2019/20 local football season at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka on August 17.

This seasons’ Charity Shield match pits 2019 Transitional MTN/FAZ Super Division and ABSA Cup winners Zesco United against ABSA Cup runners up Zanaco.

The match takes place less than two months after Zesco humiliated Zanaco 4-1 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in the ABSA Cup final.

The two giants are also scheduled to meet in the MTN/FAZ Super League opening fixture on August 31 in Ndola.

Zanaco have won the shield 3 times in 2006, 2003 and 2001.

Earlier this year, Zesco lost to Nkana 5-4 at Arthur Davies Stadium following a 1-1 draw during regulation time in the Charity Shield that followed the transitional season.

Kitwe heavyweights Nkana are the record holders with 17 Shields.
