The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has slashed gate fees for local football matches for the second time after an outcry from soccer fans, writes Alex Ndhlovu.

The major climbdown comes after fans boycotted the Chibuku Super Cup quarter finals matches, which saw a paltry crowd assembling.

The new gate charges takes effect from tomorrow`s Chibuku Super Cup semi-final match between Cranborne Bullets and Ngezi Platinum at National Sports Stadium.

“While PSL notes that clubs suffered huge financial losses during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to incur a lot of costs in preparation for matches. We also understand need to make our matches appealing and affordable to football fans who are the heartbeat of the game,” PSL Spokesperson Kudzai Bare said.

Rest of the ground now costs $3 from $10 while the VIP now costs $10 from $15 interbank rate.

The fees will be reviewed in 2022.

All attending fans are required to produce fully vaccinated COVID 19 certificate and observe laid down Ministry of Health COVID 19 regulations.

The government recently allowed sports to resume, although crowds will be limited to 2,000 fully vaccinated spectators.
