DULIBADZIMU United Football Club has promised a family fun day at the Mabhidhi Stadium when it clashes with Army side Tongogara Saturday.
Outside the field of play and on the tracks the team which still Hope’s it will bring premiership football to the country’s southernmost town will host track challenges for it’s “extra-large” supporters.
“We shall be hosting Tongogara FC at Ronnie’s Sports Arena in Beitbridge on Saturday 5 February 2022 at 1500 hrs,” Dulibadzimu secretary general Mandela “Combat” Moyo said.
“There shall be a curtain raiser match pitting General FC Vs Matshiloni FC at 1100 hrs,” he said.
At half time of the main match a Chando Big Boys Challenge 100 metre fun race will entertain the crowd, he said.
“This race pits some bulky businessmen from in and around Beitbridge. We shall be having a variety of entertainment as the season progresses because our matches should be family fundays,” said Moyo who chaired Border Strikers during it’s short stint in the premiership.
“We urge all Beitbridge residents to come and rally behind the boys in tomorrow’s match,” he said.
On the field of play Dulibadzimu Hope’s to recover from a 2-1 loss at the hands of Kwekwe United.
Poor officiating coupled with a lacklustre second half performance by visitors saw the team from three points in a match they could have wrapped in the opening 45 minutes.
The referee ended the match prematurely at 43 minutes without added time despite for stoppages to injuries.
Coach Stanley Ncube said there is still hope to pick up and even qualify for promotion although he is wary of the physical match Tongogara presents.
