ZIFA president Felton Kamambo has promised some senior national team games will be played in Bulawayo’s Barbourfields Stadium.
Kamambo made the pledge via his Twitter account as he responded to calls by one football fan, Lawrence Maphosa. Kamambo is in Istanbul, Turkey attending the third edition of the Fifa executive football summit that kicked off yesterday. Maphosa said Zifa should have brought the Warriors’ last Total Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo Brazzaville to Bulawayo next month. Kamambo however said Barbourfields Stadium does not have the capacity to host such a match. Said Kamambo:
The Warriors are a national team for all of us and we will bring them to Bulawayo in the future,” responded Kamambo. Stadium capacity is key as we expect Zimbabweans from all walks of life to come and support (the squad), this is why we could only use the NSS for a game of this magnitude. Please come.
