This was announced by Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze on Tuesday as the national association presses ahead with the implementation of the Club Licensing regulations.

The Club Licensing Regulations are the basic working documents for member associations that incorporate the minimum requirements and guidelines for every criteria for compliance as a basis for the issuance of a licence to any club.

According to the Caf document, every club must fulfil requirements for a licence and these are divided into five categories (sporting, infrastructure, personnel and administrative, legal and financial), with each category being split into three grades A-C (mandatory and best-practice recommendation).

Said Mashingaidze: “We will have a Club Licensing Workshop for the PSL and Division One clubs at the end of January. Caf has agreed to send an instructor again in February because this is a continuous process for the clubs.

“Clubs need to understand these regulations in-depth to enable them to meet the basic requirements as a starting point to the full implementation of the regulations.”
