MANICALAND’S ceremonial home of football – Sakubva Stadium – remains suspended from hosting top-flight league matches after the Premier Soccer League released fixtures indicating that Manica Diamonds’s encounter against Triangle will be played at Gibbo Stadium in Triangle.
Manica Diamonds were supposed to play their first home match for the Premiership 2023 season against Triangle at Sakubva Stadium on Sunday, but the encounter has been moved to Gibbo Stadium in Triangle as the Mutare facility was deemed unfit for purpose.
Gibbo Stadium remains the only other nearest option for Manica Diamonds, given the congestion at the National Sports Stadium in Harare where five clubs are using the same match venue as their home ground.
Rusape’s Vengere Stadium was also condemned.
