Media Statement


Following an appraisal of match venues across the country, the First Instance Body  (FIB) met in Harare on Monday 5 March 2018 and homologated the following stadiums to host Premier Soccer League matches during the 2018 season.

  1. National Sports Stadium
  2. Rufaro Stadium;
  3. Barbourfields Stadium;
  4. Luveve Stadium;
  5. Gibbo Stadium;
  6. Baobab Stadium
  7. Mandava Stadium

For  Maglas, Sakubva, Ascot and Nyamhunga stadiums, the  FIB recommended extensive refurbishments in order to satisfy minimum standards on the club licensing check list if they are to be certified to host top flight league matches.

The FIB also evaluated Club Licensing documents in line with the infrastructure, sporting,  administration , financial and legal criteria  for  clubs that applied to be granted licenses  and we are optimistic that we will conclude this exercise by end of this week.

FIB reiterates that enforcement of club licensing regulations is not meant to persecute clubs; instead, it is a professional development tool meant to benefit clubs in the long term.
