Premiership race breaks for weekend’s Chibuku semis

ZIMBABWE’S premiership race takes a break this weekend for two low key Chibuku Super Cup semi-final matches set to be played one after the other at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.
Interestingly, this year’s semis see city fathers from two of the country’s biggest cities clash while the second semi-final will also be a battle between miners.
Harare City will be first to clash with Bulawayo City at 1pm while Shabanie Mine will play How Mine at 3pm.
Harare City, the 2015 champions, have found themselves playing all semi-finals of the same competition since its revamp few years back.
But the decision to stage a double header for a semi-final is a sad anti-climax to a knock-out competition that should ordinarily be peaking at this stage.
All the four teams that have stayed the course do not command any meaningful following in the country.
The big guns of Zimbabwean football all fell by the wayside when they lost their matches during the initial stages of the prestigious competition.
The holders of the Chibuku Super Cup, Ngezi Platinum are also not part of the competition anymore.
The eventual winners of the competition will earn a ticket to represent the country in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Meanwhile, the Premier Soccer League was set to hold its 25th anniversary dinner in Harare on Friday night.
A host of administrators past and present were expected to attend the event.
