Club Career

While still in high school, Muza played for FC Maranda, a team formed by former Border Strikers official Ephat Shoko. In 2014, FC Maranda won the Zifa Matabeleland South Division Two League and earned a ticket to compete in the Zifa Central Soccer League. However, Muza’s dream of playing in the First Division did not come to fruition as Shoko struggled to find partners to support the rural project.

In 2016, a family friend named Innocent Sibanda, who worked as a taxi driver in Bulawayo, extended an invitation to Muza’s family to move to the city. Innocent believed strongly in Muza’s talent and generously provided him with accommodation, food, and training equipment. Muza shared a residence in Pumula with Elvis Ndlovu, a neighbor from his rural hometown, while Innocent covered their expenses.

Muza continued training with Indlovu Iyanyathela to maintain his fitness while waiting for an opportunity to join a club. In June 2016, he was signed by Casmyn, a Zifa Southern Region Division One side based in Turk Mine and coached by Mduduzi Mpofu. Although Muza played only one game that year, he had a more successful season the following year, scoring six goals while playing as a midfielder.

In early 2018, Muza transferred to CIWU, where he scored one goal before being signed by Talen Vision during the mid-season transfer window. Muza went on to score six goals for Talen Vision, bringing his season tally to seven goals. When Mkhuphali Masuku, a former coach of Highlanders Football Club, CAPS United, and Harare City Football Club, took charge of Talen Vision, he deployed Muza as a striker. Muza responded with 14 goals by the end of the season.

In 2020, Brian Muza joined Chicken Inn from Talen Vision, a Zifa Southern Region Division One side. However, his debut was delayed due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Muza finally made his debut in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League during the 2021/22 season.
