Four new players have been added to AmaZulu FC's squad, while the club is set to make a decision on two others in preparation for the new season.

AmaZulu have confirmed appointing Ayanda Dlamini as the club’s head coach on a three-year deal, after the former striker has led the team out of relegation in the 2019/20 season.
