COSAFA Bans Warriors, Slaps ZIFA With US$200,000 Fine

The Confederation of Southern African Football Associations (COSAFA) has banned Zimbabwe from participating in the 2020 senior men’s tournament.

The ban follows Zimbabwe’s failure to honour an agreement to host the 2019 edition of the COSAFA Cup tournament.

Zifa pulled out of holding the tournament in the last-minute after the government had refused to help them in hosting the event.

The suspension could have been avoided if Zifa had agreed to host the 2020 competition and were supposed to submit their response before June 30.

However, the association didn’t meet the deadline and was slapped with a ban.

Zimbabwe will now also be required to pay a total of US$200 000 fine to the regional football body.

Meanwhile, Zifa president Felton Kamambo’s appeal to recall Cosafa boss Philip Chiyangwa was turned down.

Kamambo is accusing Chiyangwa of sabotaging his executive and believes he worked with some members to cause chaos in the Warriors camp at the 2019 Afcon.
