Real Madrid and English Premier League soccer legends are headed for Zimbabwe for a match with local soccer greats scheduled for the 16th of June at the National Sports Stadium.
The scheduled visit by the world class legends for a date with Zimbabwe’s soccer greats is a pedestal that will carefully position the country towards a potential market of over 5 billion across the globe.
Addressing a media briefing in the capital, the coordinators of the exhibition match confirmed that within the next week Zimbabwe will once again have an opportunity to occupy a front row seat relinquishing the tactical prowess by the former football stars from the Spanish and English Premier Leagues that kept millions of soccer fans glued to their screens.
The line up that is expected to arrive in the country before the 16th of this month is sure to whet the appetite of soccer followers.
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Chief Executive Dr Karikoga Kaseke said broadly this is a huge conduit to catapult Zimbabwe’s position on the global market.
Some of the local legends Harlington Shereni and Stix Mtizwa are relishing the chance to rub shoulders with the world class greats.
The match to be beamed live via Real Madrid and Manchester Television will be curtain raised by a Dynamos and Highlanders match.
