Zifa finally brings Warriors to Barbourfields

The Zimbabwe National Team will play outside Harare for the first time in over a decade when they host Mauritius in the 2020 Chan qualifiers at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.

The Warriors last used a venue outside the capital several years ago and the Chan qualifier comes at a time the National Sports Stadium is banned to host any of Zimbabwe’s next Caf sanctioned match.

The one-match ban resulted following the chaos that led to loss of life and injuries at the giant stadium in March.

Zifa confirmed on Friday that the Warriors’ home fixture in the tie will be played at Emagumeni on 4 August.

The away leg is scheduled a week earlier on the 28th of this month.

Meanwhile, a squad made up of locally based players will be announced soon.
