Warriors’ Accommodation Chews $12 500

advert

ZIFA were left counting losses on Sunday after they grossed $88 542 having sold 25 713 tickets for the Warriors’ 2017 African Cup of Nations Group L qualifier against Guinea at Rufaro Stadium.

BY TAWANDA TAFIRENYIKA

According to the Zifa income and expenditure account for the day, the total expenditure was pegged at $101 023, leaving the local soccer controlling body with a net loss of $12 481.

A total of 508 ($1 tickets) were sold, 20 410 ($3 tickets for the rest of the ground) were sold, 4 214 ($5 tickets) were sold while only 581 fans bought the $10 VIP tickets.

The major cost drivers were the Warriors’ accommodation for the duration of their stay, which chewed up $12 500.

It could have been worse had the visitors’ accommodation been taken into account, as Guinea chose to take care of their own expenses including food.

Allowances (camping and appearance fees) for the Warriors gobbled a total of $22 000, but the Warriors accepted the money grudgingly, as they had been promised $30 000 before the encounter.

Zifa had also to pay airfares for foreign-based players and match officials totalling $12 500.

As has always been the case, stadium rentals took a large chunk of the money, with the Harare City Council smiling all the way to the bank with $13 281.

Apart from paying other various service providers, the Zimbabwe Republic Police also gobbled $3 630 for stadium security while the Sports and Recreation Commission took their mandatory 6% levy totalling $5 313 with the soccer controlling body also paying $300 for bus hire.

The Confederation of African Football (5%) got $4 427 while Fifa were paid their 2%, levy which amounted to $1 771.

Meanwhile, Zifa spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela thanked fans and all stakeholders for going in numbers to support the Warriors.

“We are grateful to fans and all partners, who contributed to the success of the match.

“Zifa is humbled by fans who thronged the stadium in their large numbers. The Premier Soccer League, Joma, Tanganda (Pvt) Ltd, Herentals College, Daisy Lodge, Prophet Walter Magaya and his partners all contributed generously towards the successful staging of Sunday’s match,” Gwesela added.

Gwesela went on to appeal to the nation to heed the association’s call for financial assistance.

“While the association will not abdicate from servicing this flagship team, we appeal to various football stakeholders to partner the Warriors.

“Zifa continues to find itself in a precarious financial position. We need financial resources for the Warriors to be triumphant. When the Warriors are victorious, that glory does not come to Zifa, but the whole nation. Zifa is in dire need of government and corporate sponsorship,” Gwesela added.

    Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does building a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

    to let you know. The design and style look great though!
