While all matches will be played in empty stadiums due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings, Zimbabwe’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches will be live-streamed on Facebook and viewed by soccer fans with data, The Sunday News reports.
This was revealed by PSL Chairman Fari Jere who said PSL has entered into a partnership with an online streaming service that will stream the matches live on Facebook. According to the publication:
Jere said PSL entered into a contract with online streaming service, mycujoo that saw several games being streamed on Facebook Live and this is likely to be the platform through which fans will watch the game.
He also said they would be engaging the national broadcaster, Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation on the flighting of live matches on ZTV.
While the PSL has a contract with ZBC, the national broadcaster last year only managed to broadcast a sizeable number of games and fans are fearful only those with internet access will watch the games.
Domestic football was given a green light to resume by the Sports and Recreational Commission on Friday and PSL is still finalizing on how they can safely hold a mini-football tournament since football resumed.
