Hwange FC's Colliery Stadium and Sheasham's Bata Stadium Can Now Host Zim PSL Games


As the 2023-24 Zimbabwe Castle Lager Premier Soccer League is now underway, the problem of unfit stadiums has remained an obstinate fact. Several of the country's football stadiums were condemned by responsible authorities as unfit and unworthy to host topflight games.

This has resulted in several teams in the league sharing the few stadiums that are up to standard. 

For Hwange FC and Sheasham, this plight is now in the past. Hwange's fortress, Colliery Stadium has been given the go-ahead to host PSL games, as well as Bata Stadium in Gweru, the home ground for PSL's newest entrants Sheasham. This, after notable renovations were made and the prescribed standards have now come to fruition. 

Clubs are incurring lots of costs in travelling expenses owing to the shortage of stadia, and home fans are equally prejudiced too with this state of affairs.

ZIFA's spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela confirmed this latest development in light of a re-inspection exercise carried out by ZIFA last week.

"The Colliery Stadium and the Bata Stadium have gone through massive development and have been cleared to host Premier Soccer League matches."

Zimbabwe's CAF-trained stadium experts are still expecting renovations progress over other facilities that were condemned.

The following teams' home facilities were ruled unfit to host Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League matches—ZPC Kariba, Manica Diamonds, Black Rhinos, Cranborne Bullets, Simba Bhora, and Green Fuel. 

Harare's National Sports Stadium currently services the following teams—CAPS United, ZPC Kariba, Dynamos, Simba Bhora, Yadah, and Herentals.
