NSS to host Zimbabwe vs South Africa World Cup Qualifier match. The continental governing body had warned that the giant facility needs to be renovated before it can be allowed to host the match but the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has confirmed the stadium has passed, though there are still some pending issues that need to be fixed.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given the green light for the National Sports Stadium to host the upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifier between Zimbabwe and South Africa. ZIFA said in a statement on Thursday:
National Sports Stadium has been temporarily approved to host upcoming World Cup qualifiers. CAF has encouraged Zimbabwe to address outstanding issues on; pitch condition, sanitary facilities and access controls.
CAF will fine ZIFA if any breaches are noted during the World Cup qualifiers. The Warriors’ road to Qatar begins in September, with a date against arch-rivals Bafana Bafana at the giant facility before they travel to Ethiopia.
