CHIBUKU FINAL VENUE WON’T BE MOVED, SAYS JERE

Innocent Kurira-Sports Reporter 

PREMIER Soccer League chairman Farai Jere says there will be NO change of venue for the Chibuku Super Cup final between Ngezi Platinum and Dynamos.

The match is set for December 3 at the Baobab. 

The Dynamos executive have been lobbying for the game to be played at a neutral venue, instead of Baobab, which is home to Ngezi Platinum, the other finalists.

“The PSL works with rules,” said Jere. 

“We don’t work with what people want but what is in the rule book. 

“Our rules and regulations are very clear. We don’t look at who is crying and who is making a lot of noise. Dynamos are going to fulfil their fixture at Baobab Stadium as planned. 

“This has always been the trend. 

“I remember last time we had a discussion in our group and it was the Ngezi Platinum governor who wanted the Chibuku final to be moved away from Mandava but we did not heed that call. 

“Football is a game of rules so play by the rules and follow the rules.”

Part of the PSL regulations state that the choice of the venue is invested in the league whose responsibilities include:

“Supervising general preparations and deciding on the competition format.

“Fixing the dates and venues of the matches.

“Determining the match schedule and kick-off times for the matches.”
