DYNAMOS have been handed a tough opening fixture to Luveve where they will face defending champions Chicken Inn in a block-buster 2016 Castle Lager Premiership tie.

The league roars into life on April 2.

Caps United kick off with a home tie against Chapungu before an away tie to Ngezi Platinum, while Highlanders will be away to Hwange in week one.

The first big Harare derby featuring Dynamos and Caps United is scheduled for week four with the former hosting their biggest rivals.

Before that Caps United would have hosted Harare City in what could be tough two-week period for the Lloyd Chitembwe coached side.

Dynamos host Highlanders in match day eight while Bosso will take on Caps in back to back clashes in week 15 and 16.

Dynamos coach Paulo Jeorge Silva said he would have preferred not to face Chicken Inn and Caps United in the opening stages of the campaign.

He argued that Chicken Inn were well prepared having been in the African Champions League where they were booted out by Mamelodi Sundowns on a 2-1 aggregate defeat while Caps United have been to Mozambique.

Dynamos not keen on chicken starter

"I would have wanted to meet Chicken Inn and Caps United in the late stages of the campaign. Chicken Inn have been playing in the African Champions League while Caps United have been to Mozambique playing friendly matches and I am only going to Malawi to play Big Bullets on Thursday," said Silva.

The Portuguese though insisted he was here to win the championship.

"We still have to play to win. I came here to play and win the league," said Silva.

Norman Mapeza’s FC Platinum starts off with a home tie against Tsholotsho before travelling to Bulawayo to face Highlanders, who also have a new coach Elroy Akbay.

New boys Mutare City Rovers and Ngezi Platinum clash on match day one, while fellow new comers Border Strikers have to make the long trip to face ZPC Kariba.

The first Bulawayo derby for the season is in match day one featuring How Mine, now coached by Kelvin Kaindu, and Bulawayo City in their debut season in the topflight league.

Bulawayo City have another Bulawayo derby to contend with in week two facing Tsholotsho, Joey Antipas’ Chicken Inn will be the first team to be hosted by Border Strikers, who are currently refurbishing Dulibadzimu to try and meet the elite league standards.


The first battle of the platinum miners featuring Ngezi Platinum, who have declared that they will spice up the league, and FC Platinum is set to take place in week four with the new comers hosting one of the pre-season title favourites from Zvishavane.
