The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) announced on their official Twitter account that Dynamos will take on CAPS United in the Uhuru Cup semi finals to be played on 16 April at National Sports Stadium while last year’s finalists Highlanders will play 2014 winners FC Platinum at Barbourfields Stadium on the same day. Both matches will kick off at 3PM.
Last year the Chicken Inn Football Club won the cup for the first time since their promotion into the Premier Soccer League in 2011, when they edged Highlanders 2-1. The 2015 Uhuru Cup final was abandoned in the second half due to bad lighting at the National Sports Stadium with Dynamos leading FC Platinum 1-0 in a match played on a soaked turf.
According to ZIFA The Independence Cup is an invitational tournament where participants are selected at the tournament organisers’ discretion. Gate charges for the semi-finals across both venues are as follows:
Rest of the ground: US$ 3
V I P : US$ 5
V V I P : US$ 10
