History[edit]

The club was formed in 1979 by Hanif Adam who was a popular DJ around Lusaka nightclubs. He was also a part time player at the club, which slowly evolved into one that focused on giving youths from different communities opportunities, and then later sell them on.

Lusaka Dynamos has sold players to destinations including Germany, Israel, and South Africa. A number of former Zambia National Team players trace their roots to the club.

Lusaka Dynamos has also given opportunities to footballers who arrived as refugees in Zambia to revive their careers at the club, with a number coming from Rwanda and Liberia. The club a few years ago decided to change its strategy in a bid to compete for honors. The club has recently signed several star players from across Africa, as well as identifying potential stars of the Zambian game.

Lusaka Dynamos have yet to win a league title with its best position being 6th in 2007 while the club managed to win its one and only trophy in the 2008 BP Top 8 Cup after beating Zesco United 1-0 in the final.
