A letter written to ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa shows the Dynamos appealed against Christian Epoupa Ntouba’s red card contrary to team manager Richard Chihoro’s comment.
The letter reads:
We write to you complaining about the red card given to our player Ntouba Epoupa. We feel the referee was not protecting our player from rough play he was encountering hence he ended up retaliating. He was being punched off the ball and he has a swollen left jaw. We therefore seek your assistance to reverse that red card decision.

Synonymous with its blue and white regalia, Dynamos commands great influence in as far as Zimbabwean football is concerned. Their so-called carpet football which involves a continuous flow of the ball coupled with accurate passing in the field of play has over time earned them the title 'Glamour Boys'. Local football fanatics usually prefer to call the team DeMbare due to the team's attachment to their traditional home ground Rufaro Stadium which is located in the iconic suburb of Mbare in Harare. Rufaro Stadium which is a stone through away from the Matapi and Tagarika hostels of Mbare suburbs has resulted in the intimate, affectionate and emotional attachment between the team and the residence not only of Mbare but of the whole city of Harare.
