NIGEL MATONGORERE – THIS weekend was supposed to have been the first game day of the 2020 Castle Lager Premiership but due to the global coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, football is at a standstill.

The off season which stretched for over 13 weeks had gone by like no time due to the flurry of signings done by the top flight teams.

Stung by the failure to land their sixth league after sitting at the top of the table for long periods, CAPS United led the way by bringing in over 20 new players.

The Green Machine faithful had been drooling by just looking at the back pages as their team made one signing after another.

It is safe to say that on paper, Makepekepe were going to start the new 2020 campaign as favourites solely based on their transfer market activity.

Dynamos were also outdone as they made over a dozen of new signings to bolster their squad that flattered to deceive in the 2019 campaign.

As the country’s most successful side, DeMbare, with 21 leagues titles were a pale shadow of their glorious past as they finished in ninth place with.

After the club’s signing frenzy in the preseason, DeMbare fans were looking forward to the start of the new season with a lot of hope and conviction that it was time to end their five-year title drought.

Defending champions FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum Stars were also heavily active in the transfer market making them contenders as well.
