The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has given the green light for fully vaccinated fans to attend football matches in the ongoing Chibuku Super Cup tournament.
In a post on their Twitter page on Thursday morning, the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) said SRC had approved a maximum of 2 000 fans per game. ZIFA tweeted:
The SRC has approved Zifa to allow 2 000 vaccinated fans for Chibuku Super Cup matches.
This means fans will be able to watch the final Group 1 Chibuku Super Cup match between Yadah and Herentals at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Saturday morning.
Local football fans last watched football from the stands in the Castle Challenge Cup between Highlanders and FC Platinum at Barbourfields Stadium on 14 March 2020, about two weeks before the country entered the first of several COVID-19-induced lockdowns.
Football has been played in empty stadia since the sport was allowed to resume in dribs and drabs during the course of 2021.
