ZIFA Is Lying BCC - Lights in Good Working Condition At Barbourfieds - Afcon 2021 Qualifiers


The Bulawayo City Council has denied the Zimbabwe Football Association's (ZIFA) claims that the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations match between Zimbabwe and Botswana was removed from Barbourfields because of bad floodlights.

The match will played at 6pm at the National Sports Stadium on 15 November.

Bulawayo Council's Senior Public Relations Officer Nesisa Mpofu gave a statement this afternoon to make clear their position after ZIFA had said that the Bulawayo City Council failed to guarantee working floodlights at the Barbourfields Stadium.

"The City of Bulawayo would like to clarify the issue on the above subject matter and subsequent Press Release from the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA). Council is not involved in the decision on the venue for the football match nor were we involved in the proposal for the game to be held in Bulawayo.

"The City of Bulawayo did get communication from a representative from ZIFA asking about the floodlights at Barbourfields Stadium and they were duly advised through a letter after tests that the lights were in a good working condition." Source: Bulawayo 24
