FC PLATINUM’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE MATCHES TO BE PLAYED AT BARBOURFIELDS STADIUM
The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) advises the football family that FC Platinum’s Total Champions League group match against Orlando Pirates will be played at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) advised ZIFA that FC Platinum’s traditional home ground, Mandava Stadium does not meet minimum requirements for this stage of Africa’s prestigious club competition.
The other stadium homologated by CAF to host group stage matches for inter-club competitions is the National Sports Stadium but FC Platinum selected Barbourfields stadium for convenience.
The match between FC Platinum and Orlando Pirates will be played on 12 January 2019 at 3pm.
CAF will conduct further inspections for Mandava stadium , Barbourfields stadium and National sports stadium going forward.
We wish FC Platinum all the best.
