The Colliery side are challenging the decision of the Zifa Appeals Committee to uphold their 4-2 loss to Dynamos in May.
Hwange secretary Burzil Dube confirmed the development to NewsDay Sport yesterday.
“We paid $1 500 for our case against Dynamos yesterday (Tuesday). We got the money from well-wishers. We will then wait to be advised on what happens next,” he said.
Hwange coaches Nation Dube and Mebelo Njekwa were assaulted by Dynamos marshals at Rufaro Stadium on May 6.
Dynamos went on to win the match which Hwange played under protest after Hwange kit manager Andrew Zulu and fitness trainer Kenneth Nyape took charge of the game following the assault of Dube and Njekwa.
The Premier Soccer League disciplinary committee nullified Dynamos’ 4-2 win and ordered a replay of the match at a neutral venue, but Dynamos sought recourse from the Zifa Appeals Commitee which resulted in the upholding of the results.
Hwange wrote to Zifa seeking redress, as they were not happy with the decision.
