FAZ Division 1 has secured a long-term sponsorship package with Eden University of Lusaka.
Eden University and FAZ have signed a K1 million a year deal that will run for the next five seasons.
FAZ President Andrew Kamanga said Football House is hoping to add more partner sponsors to second tier leagues' profile.
"I am happy that we have started this journey of Division 1 football with an education partner, we hope to have a banking partner, broadcast partner. We are opening up our sponsorship to have as many corporates as possible," Kamanga said.
"We hope that with this partnership that we are signing, we should be able to take it to the next level.
"We have for many years grappled with the challenge of luring corporate sponsors to finance the lower tier of our game. Today's developments mark a new and significant chapter.
"It is worth highlighting to everyone present that the lower tiers of our game continues to play a significant role in uplifting football standards in the country.
"I am particularly happy that the sponsorship package from Eden will provide clubs with football equipment, capacity building for coaches, prize money for winners and runners up, and a total of five player's individual awards."
