The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has suspended the Chibuku Super Cup with effect from Saturday the 3rd of due to the spike of Covid-19 cases in the country.
In a press statement the SRC said, “For the avoidance of doubt this suspension extends to the ZIFA-PSL tournament for the Chibuku Super Cup and all sports previously classified as low risk. All national sports associations, clubs, gyms and related stakeholders should abide by this suspension without exception.”
The suspension will be reviewed weekly with a few exemptions to the directive. These exemptions include athletes preparing for the 2021 Paralympic and Olympic games, the ongoing cricket tour by Bangladesh, football teams participation in the COSAFA Cup and the Charles Manyuchi title bout which have been granted the greenlight to proceed.
“Enhanced COVID-19 protocols are being communicated directly to these codes, which should be stringently adhered to. The SRC will continue to liaise with Government. However, in the meantime, national sports associations are strongly urged to encourage their members to undergo vaccination, particularly those with members participating at a national level,” said SRC.
Associations may contact the SRC for any assistance regarding access to Covid-19 vaccines.
