DYNAMOS could endure a 1069-km road trip to Gaborone, Botswana, for their African Champions League preliminary round, second leg match against Mochudi Centre Chiefs this weekend if they fail to raise airfares.

Dynamos won the first leg 3-0 at a wet National Sports Stadium on Sunday after Washington Pakamisa scored a brace while Masimba Mambare added the other goal.

Dynamos' principal sponsors BancABC stated that they will not be able to fund the team's campaign in the African Champions League although they are ready to help in the domestic matches.

BancABC have also made indications they might not sponsor this year's Super Eight

The regional banking group, ironically headquartered in Gaborone where Dynamos are travelling to, are also the sponsors of Highlanders and Premiership returnees Chapungu.

Club secretary Webster Chikengezha said they could be leaving for Gaborone on Thursday by road for the game scheduled for Sunday.

Chikengezha said the club's financial position makes it difficult for them to travel by air using the available options of flying directly on an Air Botswana plane or via Johannesburg.

Travelling to Gaborone by road from Harare takes an average of 17 hours and Dynamos are proposing to have another two buses to ferry their supporters to Botswana.

"If we want to travel via South Africa, then we are likely to spend twice as much than on the direct flight," said Chikengezha.

"The challenge for the direct flight is that it leaves Harare on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

"So if we leave early, it means we will have to foot the costs for the extra days while travelling on Saturday is tricky since we will arrive at night.

Dynamos recently moved their home games from Rufaro, where they normally made a lot from gate takings to the NSS on the reasons that the venue was unsuitable for use and a hub for hooligans who cost them $78,700 in fines last season.
