The Zimbabwe Football Association incurred financial loss of 105 475, 49 RTGS $ in staging the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between the Warriors and Congo on 24 March 2019.

Be that as it may, the association will honour its promise to donate a dollar from every ticket sold towards the cause of victims of Cyclone Idai.

The Association revealed that 36 971 tickets were sold throughout the three sitting areas; 35 977 for the rest of the ground, 894 for bays 15 to 18 and 100 for the VIP section.

ZIFA will proceed to transfer 36 971 RTGS $ to the authorities handling aid receipts on behalf of those affected by Cyclone Idai.

The net revenue generated from ticket sales amounted to 424 470 RTGS$ and the breakdown is as follows:

ROG – 359 770 RTGS$

15 – 18 – 44 700 RTGS$

VIP – 20 000 RTGS$

After adding the 4 068 RTGS$ generated from vendors, and the value of the donation from Prophet Walter Magaya [103 230 RTGS$], the total revenue realised from the Warriors/Congo match stands at 531 768 RTGS$.

Totalling 637 243, 49 RTGS$, match related expenses were 105 475, 49 RTGS$ more than the realised.
