The Zimbabwe National Soccer Supporters Association, in partnership with a renowned football sponsor, is providing 45 buses to different suburbs in Harare to ferry fans to the stadium free of charge.
This was revealed by the secretary general of the Zimbabwe National Soccer Supporters Association, Wellington Mpandare, who said the supporters’ body wanted the fans to turn out in their thousands to rally behind the Warriors at this crucial moment.
This gesture comes just a week after some supporters were also ferried for free to Maputo, Mozambique, to watch the Warriors play Mozambique in a World Cup qualifier.
Zimbabwe were held to a goalless draw in the encounter.
Mpandare said the buses will take the supporters back home after the game, adding that this is the beginning of a long term plan that will see Zimbabwean football fans get free transport to attend international matches.
Another local team, Dynamos, is also doing the same as its supporters are being ferried to all parts of the country for free whenever their team is playing away from home.
The Warriors are desperate to win this match in order to remain with a chance of qualifying at least for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations finals after their World Cup campaign was dampened by poor results.
The Zimbabwe Football Association have maintained the Rest of the Ground seat charge of $5 as charged in the match against Guinea, with the other bays also maintaining a $20 gate entry fee.
The VVIP section, which went for $100 in the game against Guinea has, however, been reduced to $50.Post published in: Football
