PSL cancel matches

The Premier Soccer League have cancelled all matches scheduled for this coming weekend because of the elections that will take place Wednesday.

In a circular to all the clubs in the league, PSL Chief Executive Officer Kennedy Ndebele said the atmosphere is not conducive to stage matches over this weekend hence the cancellation.

Ndebele said it will not be proper to stage matches during this period as the political atmosphere will be tense due to the vote count that will be going on.

This is the second week in a row that PSL matches have been suspended.

Last weekend the fixtures were postponed due to the Warriors’ engagement in the African Nations Championship in which they played Mauritius and won 3-0.

The country is going for elections Wednesday with Zanu PF candidate and current Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe contesting against the MDC T leader Morgan Tsvangairai for the presidency.

Parliamentary and Council elections are also being held at the same time.

Ndebele said the outstanding matches will be played in midweek next week to ensure that the league programme ends as initially planned before November 30.

The Confederation of African Football have given the Zimbabwe Football Association and other African football federations the deadline of November 30 to register teams to represent them in Pan African football in 2014.

Also postponed on the same election reason is the Mr and Miss Muscemania competition scheduled for this Saturday and has been moved to August 10.

The organizers say the period of the elections makes it impossible to successfully host the competition. The competition has been moved forward by a week.
