PSL meets over gate charges

The Premier Soccer League will meet here on July 27 to review gate charges, following complaints raised by clubs at the $3 being charged.

The clubs have proposed that charges be increased to $5 for the cheapest seat, something that soccer fans feel is far too much.

Instead, the Zimbabwe National Soccer Supporters Association wants the charges reduced to $2, with secretary general, Fortune Bwoni, saying the league bosses should consider the fact that soccer supporters also had to pay for things like transport.

Bwoni said raising the charges would affect match attendance, as some of the matches are being screened live on television.

PSL chief Executive Officer, Kennedy Ndebele, confirmed that gate charges were high on the agenda of the coming meeting.

Some of the clubs have already started charging the $5 fare whenever they play big teams like Dynamos, Highlanders and to a lesser extent, Caps United.

Earlier in the season, there was chaos at Maglas Stadium when Shabanie Mine charged $5 for their first match of the season against Highlanders without informing fans in advance.
