The Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art, and Recreation has taken over ownership of the National Sports Stadium.
The stadium, built-in 1987, had been owned by the Local Government, Public Works, and National Housing ministry.
Sports Minister Kirsty Coventry confirmed the change of ownership Tuesday morning, via her official Twitter handle account.
“Good news: It has been agreed that ownership and operations of the National Sports Stadium in Zimbabwe will be transferred to the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art, and Recreation. We have the experience and passion to use this opportunity for Zimbabwe to become a sporting powerhouse.
“ZIFA have failed to assure CAF that the work we are doing in the stadiums will safeguard our National Teams playing home games in Zimbabwe. ZIFA now have to come up with a stadium for our teams to play home games outside of Zimbabwe,” she said.
