A committee, the First Instance Body (FIB) which is in charge of ensuring premier soccer league clubs adhere to professionalism in football met yesterday and certified seven stadia to host Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches.
The honeymoon is over for PSL teams, which have failed to conform to the FIB club licensing statutes.
ZIFA Head of Competitions and Communication, Xolisani Gwesela said the body approved seven stadiums across the country and these are National Sports Stadium, Rufaro, Babourfields, Luveve, Gibbo, Baobab and Mandava to host topflight league.
Gwesela added the ball is in the court of local authorities to institute a speedy refurbishment for Ascot, Maglas, Sakubva and Nyamhunga.
Under the club licensing statutes, teams should own a stadium facility and administratively, they should have a qualified secretariat including a media officer.
Meanwhile, the FIB has begun player licensing and is expected to wind the process this week before league action roars into life.
