PSL weekend matches cancelled

HARARE - This weekend’s Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) action has been shelved to pave way for the Heroes Day celebrations soccer matches that will see Dynamos and Highlanders facing off among other matches.

The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) announced that at least 31 matches pitting Premier League teams and Division One teams will be played across the country during the Heroes Day celebrations with Shabanie Mine facing FC Platinum in a Midlands derby.

Reigning league champions CAPS United will be in Chinhoyi where they face Ngezi Platinum Stars while Chicken Inn and Bulawayo City clash at Barbourfields Stadium.

Black Rhinos and Yadah play each other in Marondera at Rudhaka Stadium while Harare City travel to Chegutu for a date against Chegutu Pirates.

“...Zifa, in consultation with the ministry of Sport and Recreation, advises the nation at large and the football family that 31 football matches will be played across the country as part of this year’s Heroes Day commemorations,”  the association said.

“The selection of teams to partake in the celebrations comprises of PSL teams and Division One teams from all four of Zifa’s regional leagues.”

It is, however, highly likely that most of the PSL teams would use their second string teams given the stage the season has reached.

The PSL action will return during the weekend of August 18-20 but the rescheduled midweek fixture between CAPS United and FC Platinum will go ahead as planned on August 16 at the National Sports Stadium.
