Zifa President Phillip Chiyangwa has said that his association will soon be bidding to host major Confederation of African Football’s competitions for 2021 and onwards. Chiyangwa has received support from the government as well as from PHD Ministries founder, Prophet Walter Magaya. Said Chiyangwa:
I asked the Minister when Government could be ready to host such a tournament like AFCON and he indicated that from 2021 Zimbabwe could be ready to host CAF Under-17, Under-20, Under-23 or even the AFCON itself.
There are some bids that are going on at CAF for future tournaments and the prophet said he is willing to assist in infrastructure development for that 2021 bidding process and this stadium that we are sitting on he would want to finish it and construct a road from Ardbennie that links to the stadium,
