Kirsty Coventry: National Sports Stadium

The Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art, and Recreation has taken over ownership of the National Sports Stadium.

In a statement, Sports Minister Kirsty Coventry confirmed the change of ownership via her official Twitter handle account.









The minister says the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art, and Recreation will operate the National Sports Stadium in Zimbabwe. She also said its operation and ownership will be under the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art, and Recreation.

“We have the experience and passion to use this opportunity for Zimbabwe to become a sporting powerhouse.”








However, CAF has barred Zimbabwe from hosting international matches due to the nature of local stadiums. Also, the stadium was built in 1987 and owned by the Local Government, Public Works, and the National Housing ministry.
