Gate charges increased for Bosso, DeMbare match

Those wishing to watch the match between bitter rivals Highlanders and Dynamos at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday will have to fork out more than they are used to after Highlanders decided to increase gate entry charges for the game.

Although the Bulawayo giants have not made any changes to the Rest of the Ground payments which remain pegged at $3 they have increased the charges for the VIP by $5. Instead of the normal $10, fans will now have to pay $15.

The Wing Stands which flank the VIP will now cost $8 up from $5 with Premier Soccer League Chief Executive Kennedy Ndebele saying they have agreed to the increases.

Ndebele said such high profile matches come only twice in year and clubs use them to raise funds for the rest of their season campaign since most of them do not have sponsors to bankroll their activities.

The game which has been postponed since May has been the talk of the football fraternity as Highlanders are pegged at the top of the table while Dynamos are not way off behind.

Highlanders have 32 points from 14 games while Dynamos although in seventh place have 23 points from 11 games and can go top of the table should they win all their outstanding games.

Both teams have promised an entertaining encounter come Sunday and Barbourfields Stadium should be full to capacity as has been the case in the past despite the gate charges increases.
