Chibuku Super Cup Draw Serves Mouthwatering Fixture As DeMbare takes On Bosso
The 2019 Chibuku Super Cup draw served mouthwatering fixtures that will see sworn enemies Harare giants Dynamos taking on their Bulawayo giants Highlanders in the first round of this year’s edition of the competition sponsored to the tune of $1,5 million.
In yet another exciting fixture, former Cup Kings, Caps United will face Harare City, a match that will see Lloyd Chitembwe facing his former paymasters two weeks after leaving them in a huff to join cash-rich Citizens.
In other fixtures, log leaders, FC Platinum will welcome the airmen Chapungu FC in a Midlands derby, while second placed Chicken Inn takes on Manica Diamonds.
Army side Black Rhinos will play winner between Yadah FC and TelOne FC, who will start the ball rolling this weekend via preliminary qualifiers at Mandava, in Zvishavane.
Ngezi Platinum FC will take on winners between Mushowani Stars and Bulawayo Chiefs who will be at Mandava again this weekend facing each other in the preliminary qualifying round.
ZPC Kariba will face Hwange while Triangle face the Students, Herentals at Gibbo to complete this year’s competition fixtures.
Speaking during the draw in Harare this afternoon, Delta General Manager Tichafara Rinomhota said all the Premier Soccer League (PSL) teams were eligible to take part in the competition but the competition was designed in such a way that the bottom four teams as of week 17 were to qualify via preliminary stages.
“The preliminary qualifying matches are on this weekend. The two teams that will win will then join the rest of the teams in the competition to make them 16. This years’ competition has been sponsored to the tune of $1.5 million. The good news is that as major sponsors of football, we have already started negotiations with PSL to renew our contract that will run out soon, something that should come as sweet music in the ears of all football stakeholders,” Rinemhota said.
The first round of matches for this years’ competition will be played on the weekend of 28 and 29 September.
The quarter finals are set for 26 to 27 October while the semis finals will be played during the weekend of 9 to 10 November and the finals are slated for 30 November.
Venues will be made known by the PSL after consultations with the sponsors.
