Dynamos to unveil new sponsor, players . . . PSL releases season fixture

Harare giants Dynamos will this afternoon unveil their sponsors while at the same time show their new look side ahead of the 2019 Castle Lager Premiership season. This comes as the Premier Soccer League (PSL) yesterday released fixtures for the new campaign which is scheduled to commence on March 30.

The Glamour Boys, who will begin their campaign against new-boys Mushowani Stars, have been busy on all fronts looking for sponsorship while assembling a team that can compete for honours following the departure of the bulk of players who did duty last year.

DeMbare’s executive led by Isaiah Mupfurutsa has been credited for the manner in which they are turning things around transforming the Harare giants into a professional entity and today will unveil the identity of their new sponsors, whom they have kept a secret until now.

In an invitation on their facebook page and twitter handle, Dynamos appear to confirm that they will be unveiling their new sponsors and players today. “Dynamos will unveil its 2019 squad and a new sponsor at a function to be held at the club’s offices at the National Sports Stadium on Wednesday March 6. The function starts at 2pm,” read the statement.

Dynamos coach Lloyd “Mablanyo” Chigowe has already expressed satisfaction on how things are shaping up with his newly-assembled squad which he tips to give a good fight this season. Chigowe will be hoping for a positive start to the season against Mushowani away. 

DeMbare, who are desperate to make an impression this term, having fought relegation last season, will then host returnees Hwange in their second match. It will be the third week of the season that is likely to give them a true test as they travel to Chicken Inn for a mouth-watering tie.

Chicken Inn have been busy on the transfer market and are one of the teams tipped to wrestle the title from reigning champions FC Platinum. DeMbare’s neighbours CAPS United will begin their campaign with a date against Manica Diamonds. 

The Green Machine have made a huge statement of intent by signing several seasoned players, who include Gabriel Nyoni, Phineas Bhamusi, Ronald Chitiyo among others. CAPS United will then travel to Highlanders in the second week in what could be an interesting fixture. 

The fixture will be a real test for both teams, who appear to be facing similar challenges of player boycotts over allowances during this off season. The first edition of the Harare derby between Dynamos and CAPS United will come during Week 15 while the first leg between old foes Highlanders and Dynamos will come during Week 12.

Harare City will welcome reigning champions FC Platinum for their opening match of the season while Ngezi Platinum Stars, who were runners up last season, have a tricky date against Triangle away.
