Former Premier Soccer League outfit Tsholotsho FC has disbanded due to financial constraints.

The Matabeleland North-based side was now playing in the Southern Region Division One after their three-season stay in the topflight league ended in 2017.

In an interview with the Chronicle, club chief executive officer Mlamuli Phiri confirmed the development but has said that they will concentrate on juniors who compete in the Tsholotsho District Football Association (Tshodifa).

“It’s true we are no longer in the First Division, and we will not even compete in Division Two because of financial issues.

“We don’t have money to continue, we shall be back when we gather our strength. The focus will be on the junior team that is still participating in Tshodifa,” said Phiri.

Tsholotsho, who were runners-up to Hwange in the 2018 Southern Region Division One, join Zim Leopards, who pulled out of the league also citing financial challenges.
