Last year’s edition was contested by Highlanders and Dynamos over two legs with the Harare giants winning 6-1 on aggregate.

Tournament spokesperson Charles Mabika said they have added the third team to make the tourney more exciting.

In 2012, four teams participated with FC Platinum eventually winning the cup played to celebrate President Robert Mugabe’s birthday. Mugabe is turning 90 on February 21.

Mabika confirmed three teams would compete in this annual tournament, but refused to divulge the format that would be used.

He said all the other details pertaining to the tournament would be spelt out at a Press conference scheduled for this morning.

“We have moved away from last year’s two-team format and three teams will be involved this year. We think involving the three leading teams from last season will suit the occasion we will be celebrating. The President, reaching 90 years, is a milestone achievement which needs a befitting celebration so we want to make this year’s tournament much bigger and more exciting,” Mabika said.

He did not give the actual dates of the tournament, but said the launch would be on later this month with the matches expected to start early next month.
The prize money would also be announced at the Press conference.

Dynamos received $110 000 for winning the Cup last year while Highlanders received $70 000 which they used to buy another team bus.

  1. I think it’s a good to include all 3 teams since they finished the last league campaign tied on the same number of points. They can then play a round robin tournament and the winner can be decided on points, or the top 2 teams meet in a final proper.

  2. From all the newspapers that I have read today including this one, new zimbabwe, herald, they have one thing they seem to ba saying strongly. De Mbare haina musoro, or they receive more money than any club but havagone kuita musoro nayo. Pamwe pa 7 million apa vari kupana 20cents 20 cents.

  3. This Cup is a big joke, after the well organized Mbada & BancABC cups, people should not line up social matches using our beloved President’s name. Charles Mabika is a respected man of football and should not be used by people seeking political mileage. If the president was really part of this project, it could have been better funded with more teams participating. People are using the president’s name to steal from the corperate world. Our struggling companies are donating into another man’s pocket not for a presidential cause.
