TWENTY two games in the Castle Premiership and finally ZPC Kariba return home to Nyamhunga Stadium and coach Saul Chaminuka says he cannot wait to finally play at home, starting this weekend against Black Rhinos.

They have played 11 matches away and 11 ‘home’ at their adopted venue Gwanzura in Harare and are fourth on the log standings with 38 points, just four off leaders Dynamos.

They have endured trips to Hwange, some 738km from the capital; have been to Zvishavane, Bulawayo, Mutare and Chiredzi, but not home. They used Nyamhunga during their Division One campaign last season.

But after the PSL and the Zifa Grounds Committee approved the use of the 10 000-seater venue on Monday after extensive renovations to meet standards, no one is happier that Chaminuka.

“This is good news for me, the players and the fans. We are back home and hopefully we will be able to pay the fans for their patience with wins.

“We have Dynamos and Caps United at home and it’s a pity we have already played Highlanders in Harare. It could have been nice for the fans to see the biggest teams in Zimbabwe at Nyamhunga,” Chaminuka said.

He added: “It had killed us in terms on travelling so I think for now we will fully concentrate on our home matches without worrying about when and how to travel for away matches.”

ZPC will play Caps United in their last league match of the season, a week after hosting Dynamos. They will also play Triangle and Buffaloes at home.

It is also likely that SuperSport, the league’s broadcasters, would sample the venue in preparation for next season, and could cover either the Dynamos or Caps United match.

PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele said there are a few touches that need to be completed for Nyamhunga to be used and this could be done by Wednesday.

“Our competitions manager (Elisha Mandireva) will go there tomorrow (Wednesday,” Ndebele said.
