Zimbabwe Castle Lager Premier Dates for 2019 Season Set; March - November: (ZIFA)


The new Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) General Assembly has vowed to keep the Zimbabe Castle Lager Premier League Soccer Calendar as usual amid scares of disturbances.

Farai Jere, PSL Chairman, had earlier on spoken about plans to have the ZCLPSL 2019 kick off in August (2019), probably in an effort to dodge Caf Afcon 2019 inteference. Afcon 2019 begins in June and ends in July. The calendar change would have also relieved local participants playing in the Caf Champions League, FC Patinum, from playing 12 months of football.

However, the Zifa General Assembly announced that the 2019 edition of the ZCLPSL will begin in March, and it is in line with Cafs' resolution to change.The change will largely affect FC Platinum who are taking part in Caf CL, as they will have to play for a longer period than the other competitors.

The season is also set to close on the usual November dates.
