Lower soccer division sides are reportedly likely to resume competitive football next month exactly after 12 months of no action.

This was due to the outbreak of Covid-19 which forced government to suspend all football activities.

The return comes after the league’s leadership reached an agreement to register clubs at a meeting that was held in Kwekwe, Saturday.

The leaders from the Northen, Southern, Eastern and Central regions, unanimously agreed to begin clubs registration for the Division One and Division Two teams between the 1st and 31st of May.

According to reports they also proposed that the league games will commence on 12 June.

“League games resume on June 12-13. This will be a month after the PSL programme would have resumed as indicated in the Sports and Recreation Commission’s initial directives that lower leagues would resume a month after the PSL.

“The season is expected to end in the second week of December.”

Last month government through the Ministry of Sports and the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) gave greenlight to all “high risk” sporting activities in the country.

This will see the domestic topflight football set to return in a mini league competition.

The premier league games are scheduled to kickstart on May 15.
