Chibuku Super cup kicks off

By Lawrence Trusida, Sports Editor

THE 2022 Edition of the Chibuku Super Cup kicks off this Saturday with the focus on the preliminary round as four teams fight for a place in the first round of the country’s biggest cup competition.

The country’s premier knockout competition, the Chibuku Super Cup returns this weekend with struggling ZPC Kariba and equally troubled Bulawayo City hoping to make it to the first round.

The match between ZPC Kariba and Bulawayo City which kicks off at 1 pm is the first of two matches set for Mandava Stadium this Saturday.

ZPC Kariba are coming from a draw against Chicken Inn, while Bulawayo City lost one-nil to Herentals in their last league match.

Bulawayo City have gone on a slump after losing their previous match to Highlanders following a three-match winning streak.

The match, therefore, offers the two teams a chance for redemption after struggling in the league.

The second match at 3 pm is a battle of league debutants as Cranborne Bullets take on Whawha.

Bullets had a dream debut in the Chibuku Super Cup last season when they reached the semi-finals only to be eliminated by Ngezi Platinum Stars.

However, the Hurricanes have struggled in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League and are hoping for salvation in the cup competition.

Their opponents WhaWha, have also been struggling in the league where they are at the bottom of the log.
