JUST five weeks into the 2017 season the Premier Soccer League have been thrown into a quandary with their fixtures facing a massive disruption again following a decision by the Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing to temporarily close the National Sports Stadium from any football activities.
But the ministry says that is the last football match in the next two weeks because they need to start preparations for Pastor Chris’ crusade scheduled for May 7
“Please be advised that we can only accommodate the two matches on April 26 and April 27. The other matches cannot be accommodated because we are having two major events next week hence there is a need of setting up the venue,” said Nyikayapera.
PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele immediately wrote back to Nyikayapera expressing the league’s displeasure at the decision to close out football for a prolonged period ahead of the Christ Ministries crusade
“We acknowledge receipt and thank you for your letter dated April 25, 2017.
“We are disappointed that you have taken a decision to deny us use of the National Sports for the weekend of April 29 to May 1.
