Local soccer fans will be elated to learn that the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) today gave the Zimbabwe Football Association greenlight for the Chibuku Supercup to return.

The cup, which is entering its second round is the first competitive football tournament in two years due to Covid-19 induced constraints.

Sporting activities were put on hold last week as Government measures to contain the resurgent of the Covid-19 virus across the country.

However, after engagement with stakeholders in the sporting fraternity, authorities resolved to waive a number of disciplines including football.

In a statement SRC said: “The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) is pleased to inform the public that nine sports
codes have been granted an exemption to resume specific activities in order to fulfill critical international and domestic tournaments. The relevant NSA’s are being informed in writing by the SRC.

These approvals include fixtures related to national teams from the Zimbabwe Rugby Union and the Zimbabwe Cricket. The Zimbabwe Football Association has also been granted authority to resume the Chibuku Super Cup League games and to undertake training camps for the national football teams in preparation for their participation in the COSAFA Cup in July 2021,” reads the statement.

The Chibuku Super Cup is being sponsored by Delta Beverages to the tune of US$40000.

Winners of the Chibuku Cup will represent Zimbabwe in the CAF Confederation Cup .
