The Premier Soccer League (PSL) will next week meet the country’s safety and security experts in Harare where discussions will be centered on improving the safety standards at domestic football matches.

The workshop will be held from the 5th to the 6th of July 2018.
According to PSL official website, the workshop which comes as a follow up to the security workshop held in Kadoma last year is aimed at improving the knowledge of the PSL officers and develop an appreciation of the latest trends in sport safety, security and management as well as to improve gate controls and access to the stadia.
“The main objectives of these workshops are to improve the knowledge of the PSL officers and develop an appreciation of the latest trends in sport safety, security and management as well as to improve gate controls and access to the stadia,” reads part of the press statement.
The workshop will be attended by stakeholders in the safety and security sector.
“The workshop will be attended by Premier Soccer League stakeholders which include Security Officers, Public Relations Officers, representatives from the Zimbabwe Republic Police and Local Authority officials.”
Apparently the local league have been marred with violence and hooliganism acts which have compromised the league sponsorship. Even after the first edition of the workshop in Kadoma last year, acts of violence and hooliganism continued to rock the domestic football matches.
We hope a correct coordination mechanism to support proposed integrated and cohesive planning, implementation and execution to ensure safe, secure and incident free PSL matches at all stadiums will be implemented.
