There is a possibility that the planned PSL 2 weeks December mini-tournament might not take place as ZIFA President Felton Kamambo said they have not yet secured sponsorship for the tournament one week before December starts, the Chronicle reports.
Speaking to the Publication Kamambo painted a gloomy picture about the proposed mini tournament and said:
We can’t confirm the kick-off date for now. A lot is being done to make sure this bio-bubble tournament goes on.
We have approached a number of corporates for funding, but nothing concrete has come out. The PSL is looking for potential sponsors as well. It is still work in progress.
A football official has suggested that the National Team’s coach should move around assessing players should the mini-tournament fail:
Failure to have games played will lead to serious cries when some the Chan squad is announced. Already, there are some who are spreading rumors that the Chan squad has been selected but on what merit will these players be called up?
Will they use history or what? Let the coach have a long camp or move around and monitor players while they train. Maybe that way, they can justify whatever selection that will be done without competition
