imag2145.jpgDynamos supporters who followed their team to Botswana for Caf Champions League tie against Gaborone United have promised to turn Gaborone’s National Stadium into a home environment by singing throughout the match to spur their team to the mini-league phase.

 

On criticism leveled against Dynamos fans who tend to go against their team when things are not going well for them, Dynamos National supporters President Richmond Bonongwe said such behaviour is now history. 

 

After registering a convincing 4-1 victory in the first leg encounter played at the National Sports Stadium a fortnight ago, Dembare will be hoping to capitalise on the presence of their fans who are expected to make a difference while their most frontman Cuthbert Malajila is once again back in the fold.

 

 The Glamour Boys can even afford to lose 2 nil and still qualify but as history has always shown the Zimbabwean giants are a hard nut to crack when it comes to the Champions League.

 

Dynamos Football Club’s highest achievement is reaching the final of the 1998 Champions League where they lost to Asec Mimosas of Ivory Coast by a score of 4-2.

The team is arguably the most popular team in Zimbabwe with ‘over 7 million followers. In the CAF Champions League 2008 Dynamos reached the semi-final, beating ASEC Mimosas, Zamalek and defending champions Etoile du Sahel in the process. They were beaten in the semi-final by Cotonsport Garoua of Cameroon.

Dynamos has been the most successful team in Zimbabwe  and many international players have played for the club. Moses Chunga is considered by many to be the nation’s greatest player of the modern age whilst George Shaya was the best of the pre-Independence Rhodesia whilst Elvis “Chuchu” Chiweshe,the current coach, also remains as one of Zimbabwe’s greatest ever dead ball specialists.

This year, Dynamos embraced the digital age becoming the first African club to launch a Live Chat facility on its official website. The facility allowed supporters worldwide to communicate instantly during matches, starting with the African Champions League game against FC Saint Eloi Lupopo on the 4th of April 2010.
