Herentals coach, Kumbirai Mutiwekuziva, has called on the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to keep gate charges of all topflight matches low in order to attract more football fans to stadiums.
Mutiwekuziva made the remarks after thousands of fans thronged Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Sunday to watch the Chibuku Super Cup final that pitted Bulawayo Chiefs against Herentals.
The PSL had reduced the cheapest ticket from US$3 to only US$1. Said Mutiwekuziva:
This is what football needs, this is the atmosphere that improves our football and the PSL should consider lowering tickets to US$1 next season if we are to maintain such crowds.
This is the largest crowd we have played in front of this season and surely, like everyone else we hope to have the same next season when we launch another attempt at the Chibuku Super Cup and league.
Herentals lost 0-1 after Arthur “Diego” Masiyiwa capitalised on miscommunication among the “Students” to rifle home a few metres outside the penalty box in the first half. | NewZimbabwe.com
