Uhuru Cup Final Venue Almost Ready – SRC

Murambinda High School football pitch, which is set to host the 44th Uhuru Cup featuring Dynamos and Highlanders on Independence Day, is almost ready for the event, an official has said.

Manica Diamonds will take on Simba Bhora on 17 April at Murambinda A Primary School Ground, with the Battle of Zimbabwe taking place the following day, at the main venue.

H-Metro reported Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) coordinator for Manicaland Province, Shupikai Berejena, as saying construction work at the football ground is well ahead of schedule. Said Berejena:

We are well ahead of schedule in terms of the construction work of the stadium, which is the venue of the 44th Uhuru Cup.

The installation of goalposts, markings and dugouts is expected to be completed today (yesterday) as well as well as the trimming of the turf.

We are looking forward to completing the terracing of the stadium on Saturday.

The inside plastering of the changing rooms, ceilings and tubing is currently ongoing and we expect all the required furniture to be in.

We have no doubt that we will meet the set standards for this high-profile match.

We will have Manica Diamonds and Simba Bhora clashing at Murambinda A Primary School Ground on the eve of the Independence Day celebrations, as part of the President’s Children’s Party.

The 2023 Uhuru Cup also featured Dynamos versus Highlanders and was played at Pfura Sports Stadium in Mt Darwin, Mashonaland Central Province.

Last year, the winner, Bosso, walked away with a US$35,000 winner’s cheque while the losing team DeMbare got US$25,000.
