THE Premier Soccer League has moved Tripple B’s league match with Dynamos on Sunday to Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane over security concerns with the 2,000-capacity Dulibadzimu Stadium in Beitbridge.

The Premier League debutants wanted to host all their home matches in the border town, but the PSL announced Wednesday that their home fixtures with Dynamos, CAPS United and Highlanders would be moved to Mandava which the club listed as its alternative venue.

PSL CEO Kennedy Ndebele said: “There had been a request from Tripple B to play their home match against Dynamos at Dulibadzimu.

“But the venue can only take up to 2,000 fans and we will compromise on security if we allow them to play teams with a large followings at such a facility.

“I think the agreement at the start of the season was that Tripple B could use Dulibadzimu for all their other home matches, but we will make reservations when they host teams like Dynamos, Highlanders and CAPS United that command a large following.

“That is why we had asked them to submit their alternative home ground.”

Tripple B’s public relations executive Foster Abheki said while they understood the PSL decision, the border town had been robbed of an opportunity to enjoy the spectacle associated with the visit of big clubs.

He told the Herald: “This is a blow to us as a team and to the community here in Beitbridge who had been hoping to see Dynamos at their doorsteps. It was going to be an opportunity even for Dynamos fans because some people would love to see them closer.

“We had made some renovations earlier in the season. Now we are going to incur more expenses because we will be travelling and camping in Zvishavane. This means even fewer of our fans will come to watch the match. It’s like we are playing away again and I hope we will find lasting solutions in future if we are hosting clubs with a large fan base.

“One way to get over the problem was to close the gates early and maybe hike the gate charges but it would be difficult to contain fans who would have travelled say all the way from Harare and then find themselves being locked out.”
