Minister Kirsty orders SRC to permit Under 20 National Soccer team to play in the COSAFA cup. According to the publication, the SRC had to grant the Under 20 National Soccer Team permission to travel to South Africa following a directive from the Minister of Sports Kirsty Coventry.

The Under 20 National Soccer Team has been granted permission to travel to South Africa for a COSAFA tournament after the Sports And Recreactimision okayed the trip they previously barred for the reason that ZIFA had not sought permission from the SRC, the Chronicle reports.

The SRC in a statement announcing the new development said ZIFA made another application on behalf of the young warriors which was granted by the minister. Read the full statement published by Gerald Mlotshwa below:

“Pursuant to the appeal by Zifa for the Zimbabwe Football National Under-20 (men) participation in the Cosafa tournament from 3-13 December 2009 in South Africa, the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) is happy to announce that the approval for the Under-20’s to participate in the Cosafa tournament has been granted.

The approval was granted by the Ministries of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation in conjunction with the Health and Childcare.

Zifa re-submitted their request for approval following the guidance by the Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation regarding their ‘appeal’ wherein they were advised to seek exemption for non-compliance from SRC.

Zifa will be required to strictly adhere to both the National and International Protocols for the prevention and containment of Covid-19 given the increase in the number of confirmed positive cases in the country and hosting province.

We wish the Under-20 all the success as they represent the country. ZIFA was facing a possible ban from future COSAFA tournaments and a $150 000 fine for reneging on its agreement to participate in the tournament.
