“We discussed the state of football, the resumption of our league and quite a number of other issues…among them the Covid-19 relief fund where we discussed at length its distribution,” Kamambo said.“They (PSL) have also come up with their own recommendations which the board is going to look at and make a decision in the near future. We were in agreement on almost all the items we discussed.“We have already started paying up and some of the regions have been paid in the local currency; the PSL recommended that the payments are made into their nostro accounts.”
“Now that our affiliate has made some recommendations, the board is going to look into that very soon,” he said.
Clubs want to be paid in foreign currency due to the fact that the Zimbabwe economy has slipped back into hyperinflation territory.
Initially, the 2020 football season should have commenced in March but owing to Covid-19, those plans had to be scrapped.
“But the committee will report back to us on August 8 then we will make a decision on what to do.”
Some of the recommendations made by Caf include testing of all players, coaches, support staff and all those that will be involved in matches.
