Zimbabwe's Soccer Season Dates Set

PSL fixtures secretary Beadle Musa Gwasira said the league have now resolved that the season start on that date, three weeks after the initial day the league programme was supposed to roar into life.

Gwasira said they had been holding negotiations with potential sponsors and as such could not start the game before those negotaitaions had been concluded.

Traditionally, the soccer season start during the first week of February a week after the lower divisions would have started their games.

Gwasira, who is the President of Lengthens Football Club, said the negotiations had not gone as expected and they that they did not yield the required results and the games will go ahead despite the fact that a sponsor has not been found.

The Lengthens supremo said talks with other would be sponsors were going on and the PSL would make a public announcement if a deal is struck.

Last year, the season started without a sponsor folowing the withdrawal of the Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe but the bank was so appreciative on the use of its name that it rewarded the clubs with prize monies and also sponsored the Soccer Star of the Year Award.

Gunners who won the league race went away with $40 000 while runners up Dynamos took home $21 000. CAPS United finished third and Highl;anders fourth while Black Rhinos, Underhill, Highway, and Njube Sundowns were relegated.
