Zimbabwe Banned From Using National Sports Stadium By CAF


The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has banned Zimbabwe from using the National Sports Stadium.

This decree comes after the National Sports Stadium underwent inspection last week.

The Zimbabwe Football fraternity has however been given temporary approval which will expire in November after the final World Cup Qualifier against Ethiopia.

In a statement, the Zimbabwe Football Association announced that Zimbabwe has been barred from hosting international matches for club and country.

According to the media statement, despite repeated warnings by CAF, Zimbabwe has failed to upgrade its stadiums to meet international standards.

Here is a list of areas that need to be attended to by the Football fraternity in order for the ban to be lifted.

Individual seats in the stadium
There should be fixed seats in all sectors of the stadium. Seats for spectators must be individual, fixed (e.g. to the floor), separated from one another, shaped, numbered, made of an unbreakable and non-flammable material, and have a backrest of a minimum height of thirty (30) cm when measured from the seat
