The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has banned football fans from wearing political party regalia at domestic topflight matches ahead of the country’s harmonized 2018 general election to be held on July 30.

The country’s topflight soccer body made the announcement on Thursday while imploring clubs, security marshals and members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to bar to fans wearing political party regalia from gaining access into the stadia for local matches.

“This serves to advise all football fans that political party regalia is not allowed at Castle Lager PSL matches,” PSL said in a statement.

“We urge all clubs, Security Officers and the Zimbabwe Republic Police to ensure that no fans wearing any form of political party regalia or clothing with political messages are granted access into the stadia.”

PSL also announced that there would be no Castle Lager PSL matches during the week of July 28 and 29.

“We further advise that there will be no PSL matches on the weekend of 28-29 July 2018. The Castle Lager PSL programme will resume on 4-5 August 2018.”
