The Premier Soccer League (PSL) said the commencement of the 2023 season on 18 March will not be negatively affected by the unavailability of stadiums that are either condemned or under renovation.
The Colliery Stadium in Hwange, Ascot Stadium in Gweru, Simba Bhora’s Shamva home ground, Vengere Stadium in Rusape, Sakubva in Mutare, Nyamhunga Stadium in Kariba, Green Fuel’s home ground in Chisumbanje have failed to meet requirements to host topflight matches.
This means that several teams will play their 2023 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League opening games at alternative venues.
PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele said that they hope to see stadiums that the stadiums will be ready when the season starts. He said:
We will play our games as scheduled. Our hope is that those facilities that are going through work will be completed before the next round of stadium inspections.
Otherwise, we’re good to go and clubs are encouraged to make sure that they complete the registration of their players by Friday, March 17.
In Harare, the National Sports Stadium is the only venue cleared for PSL games.
