However, the club’s spokesperson Michael Chideme on Saturday told Soccer24 that the reports were unfounded. He said:
Harare City Football Club is intact. We do not have any talk of disbandment. The club is there to stay and to contribute to the development of football in Zimbabwe.
Look at what we have done, we have produced some gems in the national league and we have also exported some gems to Europe.
So the club will still be running and we are actually looking forward to the resumption of the local league season when the COVID-19 crisis is over.
Some Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs are facing financial challenges as all football activities have been suspended since March last year due to COVID-19.
Apart from a few big clubs that are backed by sponsors, the rest of the PSL clubs depend on gate takings to fund their operations.
