ZIFA has not yet approached the Sports and Recreational Commission (SRC) to make an application for domestic football to resume following its suspension in March due to the ongoing pandemic, the Daily News reports.
This was revealed by SRC director-general Prince Mupazviriho who said they just read from the papers that football might provisionally resume on 20 October but they are yet to receive an application from ZIFA:
We are yet to receive the application from Zifa. We are only seeing and reading about what they are saying in the news,. (When they apply) We will be guided by what they want to do in terms of the conditions and we will not be looking at the time frame of. As you are aware, we recently allowed low-risk sports to resume activities and we have quite a number that have applied to start full activities.
The delay in resuming domestic football has put the Warriors who are supposed to play Algeria in November in a tight spot. The Warriors gaffer Logarusic has said he might consider picking foreign-based players for the AFCON qualifiers if football doesn’t resume anytime soon in Zimbabwe.
