On Thursday, FC Platinum made it official that they will take part in the upcoming continental competition. The club said:
FC Platinum confirmed participants of the 2021/22 Total CAF Champions League. In unusual times where events cannot confirm critical decisions, logic often bridges the gap.
The Pure Platinum quest for continental dominance continues with the sole goal of lifting the national flag and continuing on with the legacies set by fellow countrymen on the Continental football prime showcase of the Caf Champions League.
To date, no Zimbabwean club has won the CAF Champions League.
In 1998, Dynamos reached the final which they lost 4-2 over two legs against ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast.
Ten years later, in 2008, DeMbare also reached the semifinals of the competition.
