Big Harare Derby Moved To Saturday

Dynamos have increased the gate charges to $5 from $3 for the Rest of the Ground seat while the Wings will be going for $10 up from $5 with the VIP having a $5 increase to $15.

Dynamos chairman Keni Mubaiwa said gate charges had been increased to fund raise for the team so that it can offset its debts and pay players.

The Premier Soccer League has given the green light to clubs to increase their gate charges whenever they feel it is necessary.

Dynamos takes 100 percent of the gate takings. In the past, clubs used to share 60 to 40 percent with the home team taking the bigger share but the big clubs, Dynamos, Caps United and Highlanders objected to the status quo leading to a change.

This is the first time that Caps United and Dynamos are meeting and a big crowd is expected at the game considering the rivalry between the two Harare clubs.

The match had been hanging in the balance as it coincided with the game between the Young Warriors and Angola in an African Championship qualifier but the Premier Soccer League and the Zimbabwe Football Association struck a deal that has enabled the game to go ahead.

The two teams are way off the leading pace with Dynamos in seventh position with 24 points, way behind leaders Highlanders who have 33 points while Caps United are in ninth position with 19 points from 14 Games.

Dynamos will also play FC Platinum and Hwange to catch up with the rest of the Premiership clubs who have so far played 15 games.
