BF faces rigorous test
Barbourfields faces another rigorous CAF test in two weeks’ times and, if the stadium fails to satisfy the inspectors, the Warriors could be forced to play their next 2021 AFCON qualifier on neutral soil.
Although the test is meant to give the inspectors an idea of the country’s preparedness, ahead of the start of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in October, their assessment will also cover the 2021 AFCON matches.
As shown in their past assessment, once a stadium is deemed unfit, it is barred from hosting all international matches.
Already, the national Sports stadium, Rufaro and Mandava have been barred by CAF from hosting international matches.
