ZIFA northern region courses to go virtual

The ZIFA Northern Region leadership is shifting focus to conducting virtual administration refresher courses for affiliate member clubs to compensate for lost time in the past year which was starved of football action.

Although most football leagues around the world in full swing under restricted conditions, the Zimbabwean space appears to be lagging behind after going through an entire year without football action.

It is against this background that ZIFA Northern Region Mashonaland Central Chairperson Mr Gilbert Saika revealed the essence of virtual administration trainings which will ensure local sport does not lose out both on and off the pitch.

“Whilst we are trying to preserve physical distancing and adhering to safety precautions, as a constituency we are going to be having virtual training programs for administrators, so that people do not remain idle.

“We might not play football, but people should take advantage of this period and improve administration until when we resume. All we are doing is setting up the equipment, but we need to have it sooner,” he said.

Meanwhile, earlier this week ZIFA Technical Director Wilson Mutekede revealed that Confederation of African Football (CAF) coaching licence courses could soon be conducted after an application was made to the continental football mother body.

CAF A, B and C licences expire after every 2 years and courses were last held in 2017.
