ZIFA Cancels Zambia Friendly Due To Non Availability Of Stadium

Zimbabwe Football Association has confirmed that the inagural Christmas Challenge Cup between Zimbabwe-Warriors and Zambia scheduled for 23rd December has been called off due to non availability of the Stadium.

ZIFA confirmed on Monday that the match which was scheduled to take place at the Harare National Sports Stadium - curtain-raised by Zimbabwe-Warriors Legends vs Bafana Bafana Legends, will no longer take place as the stadium is fully booked for a wedding on the proposed date of the encounter.

"The association was advised that the facility is booked for a wedding on the same date, therefore, the friendly match cannot go ahead," said ZIFA in a statement released on their website.

"ZIFA is concerned by the prioritising of non-sporting events ahead of football matches when it comes to access to the National Sports Stadium.

"ZIFA unreservedly apologises to all stakeholders for all inconveniences caused," read the statement.
