The financially insolvent institution which is sitting on a US$2 million debt has been surviving on hand outs from partners to bail them out on matters of national team commitments, accepted it has never been easy for them.
ZIFA CEO, Jonathan Mashingaidze said they owe it to football and its various partners to continue the fight towards success.
Concerning the future, Mashingaidze noted the institution will not surrender until official partners are on board.
Last week the football association had the Warriors friendly match against Botswana fulfilment threatened due to financial resources.
On Wednesday the Mighty Warriors are expected to also make a trip to Botswana for an African Women Championships qualifier against the hosts.
With both national teams and their juniors expected to go into an activity filled year, hopes are that ZIFAâ€™s well wishers’ pockets also donâ€™t dry up.
