The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) have highlighted the need for patners to help foot the bill when the Warriors are back in action this month for the two AFCON 2021 qualifiers.

ZIFA need close to $US200 000 for the two fixtures against Botswana and Zambia slated for this month to be fulfilled and acting Vice President Phillemon Machana explained the possition the association is in.

“We have always stated that ZIFA need partners, be it in providing accommodation, transport, water, allowances for players or anything that helps lessen the burden on the association,’’ Machana told The Herald. 

“We welcome anyone who wants to partner us. We are a very transparent organisation.In the past we have always held that sponsors can assist in kind or that they can deal directly with the service providers, remembering that this is a national project, not a ZIFA baby.’’ he said.

Of the 32 players called in by coach Joey Antipas, 13 need to be flawn from Europe, 11 will come from South Africa while one from Zambia and according to Machana, US$4700 is needed to fly in one player from Europe inclusive of accomodation.

The bill to fly the entire team to Zambia is US$80 000 hence the association’s need for partners.
