The inaugural ZIFA Awards which was scheduled for November 11 have been postponed to a later date.
According to the Herald, the organising committee for the awards met in Harare on Wednesday and agreed to move the event to a later date this year because of a number of reasons.
The deputy chairman of the committee, Tendai Taruvinga confirmed the development.
“We have no option but to postpone the show but we can assure the public that we will try to ensure that the delay is minimal and we will advise of the new date very soon,” said Taruvinga.
“They are some key figures in our game, including ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa, who will be hosting the foreigners expected to grace the event, has been invited to Tunisia as a guest of the Tunisian Football Federation on the same weekend.
“Also, the Warriors will be committed on the same date with an international match in Namibia and a number of our players are supposed to be part of the gala.”
The ZIFA Awards seek to honour those who have contributed to the development of the game in this country — including the greatest Zimbabwean Footballer of All-Time as chosen by the people. The show is set to feature high-profile international football personalities.
