Zimbabwe Football National Soccer Teams will not use the National Sports Stadium after a Confederation of African Football (CAF) ban over the stampede that led to the death of a young woman in March (2019 - before the final Total-Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against Zimbabwe and Congo).

The National Teams will not be able to use the National Sports Stadium for the next two CAF sanctioned matches.

The ban was issued by CAF's Disciplinary Board, in terms of CAF Statutes & Regulations and Articles 82, 83.1 & 151 of the CAF Disciplinary Code.

However, one match from the sanction will be suspended in the event that the incident is not repeated in the next twelve months.

The next national team match reguted by CAF will be played at another stadium in the country.
