Highlanders will play their league match against Bulawayo City this weekend in front of spectators according to the Premier Soccer league.
Highlanders had been fined $3500 and ordered to play their next game in an empty stadium as punishment for violence that occurred following their match against Chicken Inn earlier in the season.
