ZPSL CLUBS MIGHT LOSE SPONSORS IF ZIFA DOESN'T CLEAR FOOTBALL RETURN  SOON


Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League clubs are urging the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) to clear for the return of soccer in the nation that had been stopped, 'with a few exceptions', because of the Covid-19 pandemic .

According to reports, 'Dynamos', in particular, may lose, Remington Gold, as their sponsor, in the event the 2021 Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League fails to start.

Local premier soccer league clubs are asking ZIFA to follow after the likes of Zambia and South Africa which have allowed football to go on regardless of the complications brought about by covid-19:

Dynamos is said to have written to ZIFA asking for a return of football in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League:

"Dynamos Football Club, a member of the ZIFA Assembly, hereby request your esteemed office and person to facilitate the resumption of elite league football in Zimbabwe".

"Our request and urgent plea is premised upon the need to save the local football industry from near collapse, which collapse would have a negative ripple effect on the mainstream economy.

Our anchor sponsors are on the brink of withdrawing their sponsorship of the club should games not resume by March 2021, a situation that would plunge the sports industry into an abyss since we contribute to the local football and sport fiscus".

"As one of the biggest teams in Zimbabwe, boasting of a huge following in the ten provinces of Zimbabwe, we request that local football is allowed to resume under water-tight conditions which we commit to observe to the letter".

While CAPS United is also reportedly having a hard time meeting expenses, as well as Highlanders, and the revival of football in the country might resolve these financial issues.
