CAF has barred Zimbabwe from hosting international matches.
CAF has barred Zimbabwe from hosting international matches due to the nature of local stadiums. Meanwhile, no stadium has met minimum standards to host international games.
Zifa had hoped to use Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo which hosted FC Platinum’s Champions League home ties. ZIFA confirmed that CAF notified the football governing body of its decision to bar the country’s stadiums from hosting international matches.
However, the latest decision by CAF comes barely two months after the continental body inspected local football facilities before condemning the state of the National Sports and Mandava Stadium.
ZIFA revealed that no improvements have taken place at all local stadiums. Which however leaves the country facing the grim prospects of playing all its home matches outside the country.
