Zifa to set budget, affiliation fees


THE newly-elected Zifa Southern Region board’s meeting set for Friday will discuss, among other things, the budget and affiliation fees for the 2014 season.


Chairman Musa Mandaza said they were reviewing last year’s budget in order to draft this year’s budget when the board meets.

“We are having our meeting on Friday to put everything in order. We are going through previous budgets and we will be discussing these at the meeting in order to come up with this year’s budget,” he said.

He said they had not set the affiliation fees for this season as they will also be discussed at the meeting.

Last season Mkhosana Football Club of Victoria Falls did not finish their matches as they were unable to pay the $2 400 affiliation fees.

The league does not have a sponsor and Mandaza said, soon after he was elected, his aim was to lure sponsors to the league.

The Southern Region Division One League was last sponsored by Buscod Supermarket who pulled out at the end of the 2011 season.

Mandaza said there were a number of other issues that they would discuss at the meeting including the start of the Division One League.

“Provisionally the date league starts on the third week of March. However, we will set the date at the meeting,” he said.

Mandaza said they had also started registration of players for Division One League and were expecting all clubs to have completed registering their players before the start of the season.

“The registration is done nationally. All the teams have been given the disc and they have to fill out the information required and it will be sent to Harare. Teams should have registered their players before the close of the transfer window,” he said.

Mandaza was elected into office with vice-chairman Gaylord Madunguza and board members Tumediso “Drogba” Ndlovu, Bryton Malandule, Jabulani Chinyangarara and Khumbulani Mbano.
