The improvements include adjustments on the perimeter fence which has been adjusted to the recommended height of 1,2 metres as well improvements on the turf, while improvements on the terraces, scoreboard, car park and the commentary room will soon follow.

This development comes following the team’s performance in the Premier Soccer League last year where it came out position 4 enabling it to qualify in the Confederations Cup Tournament.

The team is expected to take its first away encounter with Jamuri Football Club in Zanzibar in mid-February.

On the issue of players lined up for the crucial match, Hwange Football Club Secretary, Mr. Burzil Dube could not be drawn into disclosing  the entire list, and only mentioned Farayi Vimisayi and Obert Moyo adding that other players have been retained while others will be loaned from other teams.

The team which will be taking part in the Net One Charity Shield will use the opportunity to fine tune the squad which is also set to go for pre-season camping for two weeks in preparation for Confederation Cup matches.

Meanwhile, renovations on the stadium are expected to be complete by the end of this month and it will be ready for use by the beginning of next month.
