The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has given its 18 clubs five days to ensure that all their players and officials are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as it prepares to reapply for the return of football.
In a communiqué to clubs and the league’s governors, PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele asked all clubs to avail their players’ COVID-19 certificates by the 3rd of August.

Ndebele also asked clubs to update their players’ lists and ensure that the player registration process is completed before the 31st of July. Said Ndebele:
This serves to remind you that the second player transfer window is closing on Saturday 31 July 2021.
Please ensure that the player registration process is completed before the said date.
The next player transfer window is in January 2022. Please let us have your updated players’ lists by Tuesday 3 August 2021.
We further request that you furnish us with copies of all players’ and officials’ COVID-19 vaccination certificates by the above-stated date.
He said the PSL was presently seized with preparing an application through the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) for the commencement of the Castle Lager Premiership.
Ndebele implored clubs to thoroughly prepare their home grounds so that they are ready to host league games.
He warned that clubs that fail to prepare their grounds to meet the required standards may be forced to play home matches at a neutral venue.
