Zifa has revealed that they are now waiting for CAF to come and inspect the National Sports and Barbourfields stadiums after submitting a preliminary report for both venues.
The continental banned the grounds from hosting any international game due to their poor state.
Renovations have been carried since March, and the association believes the stadiums are now in a position to pass the next inspection and gets approval to host the Afcon and World Cup qualifiers on home soil.
However, Barbourfields will only be designated to host low-tier games such as those featuring the country’s national youth teams like the Young Warriors.
The Bulawayo venue will not be able to meet international standards as the facility is now too old for expansion.
