The 45 000-seater Mbare facility, nicknamed by football fans as ‘The Ceremonial Home of Football’, is now a pale shadow of its former self and was declared not fit to host international as well as PSL matches.

The City Fathers started working on the pitch this February to spruce up the stadia which had become an eyesore due to years of neglect.

According to a statement released by the Harare City Council recently, as part of the project, City Parking, a major source of revenue for the council, will carry out works outside the main stadium. 

The stadium’s outer wall was in terrible shape, and basic infrastructure maintenance has been an issue. The open space outside the ground was turned into a dumping site while part of the car park had been occupied by trucks and vendors.
