The reviewing of the current constitution follows concerns raised over the failure by the document to conform to the Sport and Recreation Commission Act and some of the FIFA regulations.

Commissioning the review committee in the capital, ZIFA president Cuthbert Dube said the current constitution was hurriedly put together in 2009 and fell short of addressing the needs of future football generations.

Meanwhile, ZIFA is concerned with the level of corruption among the Premier Soccer League referees saying it is chasing away sponsors at the most critical moment, with the ZIFA president suggesting that the Platinum–Dynamos match might be officiated by foreign referees.

The four-member Constitutional Review Committee will be chaired by Cosmas Mukwesha, Tim Sagahwe, Tavengwa Hara and Tinoda Hove, all with legal background.
