The registration deadline for the Zifa Bulawayo Metropolitan Province for the 2012 season is tomorrow and clubs that would not have paid their affiliation fees risk being left out of the league.
Zifa Bulawayo Province secretary Washington Sithole said the processing of licences was on for the Division Two and Three leagues and the response was positive from the clubs.
The affiliation fee is $600.
We are preparing our licences and we are hoping to be done by April 1. We would like to advise the clubs that the due date for registration is March 29 (tomorrow). Processing of licences is in progress and the affiliation fees for this year is $600 and those clubs which will not have paid by then might be left out.
But the response so far has been good, the clubs are coming and we hope all will be done and set by Thursday (tomorrow), Sithole said.
So far, 17 teams have registered for the Division Two League with Portland Cement and Old Nic Mine having been promoted from Division Three.
Other teams that have come forward with their registration papers are Zim Leopards, Rainbow, East Rovers, Ajax Hotspurs, Highlanders, FMH Academy, Byo Jumbos, Zimplow, ZRP Bulawayo, Magwegwe Pirates, Khami, NRZ Tigers and Pumula North (formerly Falakhe).
The old clubs that are in Division Three are Toronto, VS Stars, Casmyn, Mpopoma Pirates, Matopo, Plumtree FC and Bulawayo Busy Bee.
Chicken Inn have registered a club in Division Three, while Christian Brothers College are also in together with other new clubs White Bird, Anole Castings, CS Distributors, ZRP Westgate, Besana Besana, Wolves FC and Arenel Movers.
