The Sports and Recreational Commission (SRC), has banned all sporting activities in the country from June 14 2021 as measures to curb the renewed surge in Covid-19 infections.

The SRC says the move follows the announcement of lockdown measures by the Minister of Health and Child Care (Rtd) General Constantino Chiwenga on Saturday.

“All national sports associations, clubs,gyms and related stakeholders should abide by the suspension without exception,” read the SRC statement.
The association also affirmed that they are aware of ongoing sporting commitments and will communicate with the relevant associations for way forward.
“The SRC is aware of certain ongoing, or contemplated, national sports commitment and will be in urgent communication with the relevant national associations thereof on guidance, and other motivators measures in light of the above suspension,” the SRC added.

The news comes as a blow to local soccer fans as the Premier Soccer League Chibuku Cup was gaining steam, entering into its second round matches.

Also cast in doubt is the inaugural Marvelous Nakamba under 17 football tournament which was slated for June 19 2021.
