ONLY 13 514 fans paid to watch the blockbuster Castle lager Premier Soccer League clash between Highlanders and Dynamos at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday with Bosso realising just over $20 000 after deductions.

Highlanders, who won the match 2-1, grossed $44 759 before paying out levies to the Premier Soccer League (PSL), Zifa and the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC).

According to club treasurer Donald Ndebele, the club only realised $20 185, 25 having also paid for security to the Zimbabwe Republic Police as well as use of the stadium to the Bulawayo City Council (BBC).

BCC gets 20% for stadium use which calculates to $8 971,80 for this particular match while Zifa and the SRC each get 6% which is $2 691, 54.

The PSL claims 10% of what is left after the Zifa and SRC deductions have been made.

Ndebele said the police who charge at a rate per hour got about $2 700.

Highlanders, reeling under a debt of more than $600 000 rely on gate-takings for the day-to-day running of the club and are seized with paying winning bonuses for their players and technical staff having won three consecutive matches.
Sponsors BancABC pay the salaries for the coaches.

Club chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede has been vocal in his fight against paying the police for security services provided at league matches and the high levies paid to the local authorities.

  1. why only 13,000 fans . Boss says that they are in trouble yet they dont ensure the capacity crowd pays to get in. and then they cry. What is the barbourfields capacity ?

  2. It’s high time that Psl,zifa,SRC and the clubs come up with a plan to ensure that everyone pays to watch. Clubs are suffering and player will die paupers.I watched the match on tv.twice that figure had a free watch.ndozvikuitika kuSa here izvi. Nxaaa.

  3. That supporter waving a tribalism placard did not pay. he must be one of those supporters who jump the wall to gain free entry. Also management is lapse at highlanders. improve your system. That was over 25 000 supporters.
