This follows immense efforts that have been made by energy side Kariba FC in uplifting standards of the resort town’s Chaminuka stadium. ZPC Kariba have been using Gwanzura stadium in Harare for their home matches.
When the supreme football action resumed for the season early this year, PSL chairman Twine Phiri refused to endorse Chaminuka Stadium for use, citing that it was too short in length, among other irregularities.
However, The Zimbabwean recently established that the PSL was on the verge of endorsing the stadium for use.
ZPC Kariba chairman, Munyaradzi Nduna, confirmed his side expected monitors from PSL to visit the stadium for its approval. He also expressed hope of immediate approval, in time for their next league opponents, Black Rhinos.
ZPC are the first team from Kariba to be promoted to premiership football and remain the only team from Mashonaland West Province to play in the premiership after the demise of Rio Tinto, later named Eiffel Flats.
The development will therefore, mean their fans ultimately have an opportunity to watch their side closer home.
Meanwhile, PSL matches that had been scheduled for this weekend have now been moved to a later date to allow quarter-finals of the Super Chibuku Cup over the weekend.
With Dynamos now out of the tournament, Highlanders will have to make amends of a recent 1-4 drubbing by the Glamour Boys in the TM challenge cup, to redeem the lost pride.Post published in: Football
