Shooting Stars Relocates To Gweru

Simon Chifamba, the Shooting Stars treasurer, confirmed that the club had switched bases from Rufaro Stadium to Gweru Ascot Stadium.

The move by Shooting Stars is simply economic as Harare boasts of seven clubs CAPS United, Dynamos, Kiglon, Monomotapa, Motor Action, Gunners and Lengthens who all scramble for the fans each weekend.

Gweru were left without a club in the premiership following the relegation of Chapungu in 2008. In the past Gweru use to be home to top clubs such as Bata Power and Gweru United which all played in the top-flight league before collapsing.

The Premier Soccer League is set to kick of on April 17.

Meanwhile the premiership has announced a new sponsor for this year’ league championship.
According to the chairman of the Premier Soccer League Twine Phiri, the new sponsor will be unveiled at a special function at Meikles Hotel on Tuesday.

The Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe (CBZ) sponsored the league last year. The champions of the league Gunners pocketed US$35 000.
