The Chibuku Super Cup, which was halted in the height of the third Covid-19 wave which rocked the country around in July, is set to resume tomorrow.

The matches will be played in compliance with COVID-19 protocols, which means no fans are allowed into the stadium.

The Premier Soccer league has released the mid-week fixtures to mark the resumption of the Cup matches.

In Group 1, Herentals and ZPC Kariba will kickstart the tournament in the morning at the National sports stadium, followed by the afternoon match on the same venue pitting Dynamos and Yadah FC.

In Group 2, Log leaders Chicken Inn will take on Bulawayo city in Barbourfields stadium.

Groups 3 will see Cranborne Bullets clash with Manica Diamonds at Sakubva Stadium in the morning, while Black Rhinos and Tenax will meet in the afternoon at the same venue.

Group 4 Log leaders Ngezi Platinum will kickstart group’s matches against Triangle at Mandava stadium in the morning, FC Platinum and Whawha will wrap up the afternoon.

Local fans have been starved of football action, only witnessing a month of league football over the past 18 months.

Experts are hoping after the resumption, the Chibuku Cup will be allowed to run with minimal disruptions as the national team needs a bigger pool to pick from, and this includes local based stars who have been inactive for a lengthy period of time.
