CAF SANCTIONS ZIFA OVER INCIDENTS AT THE NSS ON 24 MARCH 2019
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Disciplinary Board, in terms of CAF Statutes & Regulations and Articles 82, 83.1 & 151 of the CAF Disciplinary Code, has resolved to ban our national teams from using the National Sports Stadium for the next two CAF sanctioned matches.
The sanction arises from the crowd trouble which transpired at the National Sports Stadium on 24 March 2019 prior to the match between Zimbabwe and Congo .
One match from the sanction is suspended in the event that a similar incident does not occur at our matches in the next twelve months.
The next national team match under the auspices of CAF will be played at another homologated stadium.
