Buckle Up for the Harare Derby: Dynamos vs CAPS United Returns to the National Sports Stadium
The highly anticipated Harare Derby between Dynamos and CAPS United will finally return to the National Sports Stadium this weekend, marking a significant moment for both teams and their fans.
Dembare’s Determination to Return Home
Weary of the constant travel to Bulawayo, Dynamos has actively advocated for a return to their home ground in Harare. Last week, the club took a decisive step by submitting a letter to the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) in hopes of a favorable response.
Vincent Chawonza, Glamor Boy’s vice-chairman, confirmed that the SRC received the letter and expressed optimism regarding the stadium renovations. The crucial next step is the assessment of the ground by the stadium inspection committee before reopening the gates.
Renovations and the Stadium Crisis
In July, the Premier Soccer League evacuated the National Sports Stadium to address urgent problems like malfunctioning facilities. The stadium suffered from the ongoing stadium crisis in Harare, resulting in excessive use and deterioration. Behind the scenes, the Sports Commission has been actively striving to accelerate the stadium’s availability for domestic football. While no specific timeline has been given, an official has guaranteed an upcoming update on the stadium’s condition and Dynamos’ request.
Derby Returns, Igniting Rivalry and Excitement
The long-awaited return of the Harare Derby to its iconic venue promises to reignite the intense rivalry between Dembare and Green-Machine. It also brings a much-needed surge of excitement among local football enthusiasts. With Dynamos determined to recover from their recent loss and climb from their current 6th position, and CAPS United striving to improve from their 11th position, the stage is set for an exhilarating showdown that fans have been eagerly anticipating.
