ZIFA To Report To CAF Progress On Stadium Renovations

Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) spokesperson and club licensing manager Xolisani Gwesela on Friday undertook an inspection of the National Sports Stadium (NSS), which has been under CAF’s scrutiny for some time.

According to a statement by ZIFA, Gwesela inspected the stadium before he compiles a report that will be used by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to determine the venue of the Warriors’ World Cup qualifier against South Africa in June.

The inspection came a few days after ZIFA was fined US$2 000 by CAF for technical infractions noted at the National Sports Stadium during the Warriors’ match against Zambia on 29 March.

CAF cited the absence of bucket seats, and the general uncleanliness of the stadium as the basis for the sanction.

The Warriors’ match against Algeria played in November last year and against Zambia played last month at the stadium were played under temporary approval granted by CAF in October 2020.

The stadium had been barred from hosting senior men’s international matches in March 2020.

There are concerns that the Warriors could be forced to play their home matches away from home until the National Sports Stadium is fixed.
