Zifa President Phillip Chiyangwa donated football equipment to 154 football teams in the Zimbabwe Republic Police. This is Zifa’s third donation in the last month with earlier donations to the Zimbabwe Women’s Soccer League and the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services. Chiyangwa said he wanted to spread the game of football across the whole country and to discover new talent.
There is talent that I want to pick from there and nurture it because we would want to have as many football teams as we can in Zimbabwe.
We have to emulate China, they are doing the same programme with so much success. They are even importing world stars so that their players learn from them.
They are building huge facilities. I am scheduled to travel to China in order to establish some sort of relationship so that we can even have our players going there.
So I will provide equipment and material enough for 154 teams.
