FC Platinum Hopeful CAF Will Allow Them To Use Mandava Stadium For Group Matches

Zimbabwean soccer champions FC Platinum are concerned that CAF may force them to abandon Mandava stadium as a venue for the group games.

Reports indicate that there are misgivings over the lighting conditions at the Stadium. Some CAF games are played at night.

FC Platinum are of the view that moving away from Mandava will be contrary to their ‘project’. A statement released by the club read as follows;

The purpose of the project in the first place was to put Zvishavane and the surrounding communities on the map by bringing top international football to the town.

Now we have qualified for the group stages and we will be hosting African football giants, it has always been our wish to host these games in Zvishavane for the benefit of the community.

But if we are not going to play the matches in Zvishavane we feel it will be defeating the whole process for the very formation of this club which is to benefit the local community.

The club has not received anything official regarding the venue switch but it is our hope we will be able to play these matches in Zvishavane.

As a club, we have very good memories at Mandava as part of our objectives to be a leading African brand on the continent we hope to continue building these success stories at the venue.

Everything we do resonate with the community of Zvishavane.
