Zanaco FC is a Zambian football club based in Lusaka that plays in the MTN/FAZ Super Division. They play their home games at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.
This club was formed in 1978 as a social team by management trainees of Zambia National Commercial Bank.
Jame alitho will have to face off stiff competition from Zambian born goal keepers Mangani Banda, Rachar Kola and Nsabata.
Their next league game will be at home tomorrow as they host 14th place Kansanshi Dynamos.He joins a horst of Ugandan players playing in Zambi.
