Rufaro Stadium Suspended Pending Re-inspection by PSL

Rufaro Stadium Suspended Pending Re-inspection by PSL

The Premier Soccer League has announced the suspension of Rufaro Stadium pending re-inspection by the First Instance Board responsible for venue certification in the country. Rufaro Stadium, which recently reopened for the first time since 2019, hosted several matches over the Easter weekend, including CAPS United’s clash with Bikita Minerals.

However, the venue has been excluded from this weekend’s Week 5 fixtures due to reported issues with faulty turnstiles, causing delays and long queues during matches. PSL spokesperson Kudzai Bare clarified that Rufaro’s homologation was temporary, with plans for re-inspection before further matches can be staged there.

As a result of Rufaro’s suspension, Dynamos will need to find an alternative venue for their match against Bulawayo Chiefs, while Yadah is awaiting approval for their Heart Stadium. The Week 5 fixtures have been rearranged accordingly to accommodate the changes in venue availability.
