The Zifa assembly will today decide whether the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season should adopt the August-May calendar.
The PSL came up with the proposal to align its calendar with that of CAF, and a decision will be made during the Annual General Meeting to be held in Harare. The local campaign usually starts around March and ends in December.
According to the League’s chairman, Farai Jere, a transition plan is already in place and will see two tournaments hosted before the start of the next campaign. There would be a knockout competition and another mini-league tournament before the teams go for a break in May until August when the new season will start.
Jere added that the sponsors, as well as the Zimbabwe Football Association, have raised no objections to the change in the local football calendar ahead of the decisive meeting today.
“There is a plan in place, the sponsors have given it a thumbs up, Zifa has given it a thumbs up, so what is left now is to meet because it’s a constitutional matter,” said Jere in a local publication last week.
