Simba Bhora Chooses Temporary Home Venue for Premier Soccer League Resumption
Premiership debutants Simba Bhora have made a crucial decision regarding their temporary home venue as the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League prepares to resume on July 1. With the National Sports Stadium undergoing renovations and being restricted to hosting only two games per week, the team had to explore alternative options.
Simba Bhora, one of the eight teams that utilized the 60,000-seater National Sports Stadium while awaiting completion of their own home ground, Wadzanai Stadium in Shamva, has now identified two potential temporary venues. The team’s spokesperson, Charles Nyatsine, confirmed their decision, stating,
“There are plans to get an alternative venue as directed. Our first option is Baobab, and our second option is Bata.”
The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) compelled clubs previously using the National Sports Stadium to find alternative venues due to the limitations imposed on the facility. With a minimum of four matches per week previously being hosted there, the league’s suspension provided an opportunity for renovations to take place.
The announcement of Simba Bhora’s choice comes amidst reports that Morris Depot will be one of the venues designated to host PSL matches upon the league’s resumption. This decision will allow the team to have a temporary home where they can continue their pursuit of success in the premier league.
Choosing between Boabab Stadium in Mhondoro and Bata Stadium in Gweru demonstrates Simba Bhora’s determination to ensure a smooth transition and adaptability during this period. Both venues have their advantages, and the team is evaluating the best option for their players and supporters.
Simba Bhora’s spokesperson emphasized the importance of promptly securing an alternative venue, indicating that the team is focused on maintaining their competitive edge. With the league’s return just around the corner, it is crucial for all clubs to adjust to the changes and ensure they have a suitable venue to host their matches.
The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League’s resumption on July 1 will mark an exciting moment for football enthusiasts across the country. As Simba Bhora faces this new challenge, their choice of temporary home venue highlights their commitment to overcoming obstacles and continuing their journey in the prestigious league.
In the coming weeks, fans can expect thrilling matches and intense competition as teams adapt to their new environments. The selection of alternative venues ensures that football can resume without delays and provides an opportunity for clubs like Simba Bhora to showcase their talents and make their mark on the league.
