Venue quandary for PSL

ONLY nine stadia have been cleared to host Castle Lager Premiership matches when the 2019 season commences this coming weekend.

This is likely to cause problems for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) because organising fixtures will now be a big challenge.
The First Instances Body — a Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) sub-committee tasked to looking at issues of club licensing — went around the country inspecting the venues ahead of the new season.

Yesterday, Zifa chief executive officer Joseph Mamutse informed the PSL that only the National Sports Stadium, Barbourfields, Rufaro, Luveve, Nyamhunga, Baobab, Mandava and Colliery were deemed fit.

This means that Ascot, Sakubva, White City and Trojan Mine will all not be allowed to host PSL matches unless specific areas are addressed to meet the First Instances Body’s recommendations.
Gweru-based clubs TelOne FC and Chapungu will be the biggest casualties as they are left with no home ground for this season.
