Football fans across the country are waiting with bated breath for authorities to announce the way forward on the Chibuku Super Cup tournament.
This comes after the Health and Child Care Minister Vice President Costantino Chiwenga banned all public gatherings with effect from 14 June 2021 in a move meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Chiwenga told the media on Saturday evening:
All public gatherings, churches, music shows and sports have been banned, except for funerals with only 30 people allowed to attend.
The Chibuku Super Cup is currently underway after the government finally gave the green light for football in the country to return after an 18-month long COVID-19 enforced break.
The tournament is being played with strict adherence to COVID-19 procedures in accordance with the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Among other things, journalists (broadcast and print) who will cover Chibuku Super Cup matches have to produce COVID-19 test certificates done within 48 hours to gain access to the match venues.
This is in line with COVID-19 preventative measures, protocols and directives issued by the PSL, WHO and local health authorities.
