THE international friendly match between Zimbabwe and Mozambique, set for December 8, will be played at Barbourfields Stadium, Zifa has announced.

This follows Warriors coach Ian Gorowa’s request to have national team games spread all over the country.

In recent years, Warriors matches have normally been played at either Harare’s Rufaro or National Sports Stadiums.

Last weekend Gorowa expressed concern about Rufaro’s artificial turf, worrying that it may be an injury risk to players.

He also expressed worry over the National Sports Stadium as an unfavourable hunting ground, as the Warriors have struggled for results there recently.

Zifa communications manager Xolisani Gwesela said they have paid heed to Gorowa’s calls for a shift in venue.

“The coach was right after all. There is need to spread the game to various parts of the country and that is why we have agreed to host Mozambique at Barbourfields,” Gwesela said.

“Barbourfields matches international standards, so there is no reason why we should neglect it. We are confident big matches can be played there.”

Barborfields staged the final of the 2000 Cosafa Castle Cup, in which Zimbabwe upstaged Lesotho to the crown.

The last international event hosted by Barbourfields was the 2009 Cosafa Cup where a few group matches were played there.

It has also been used to host Young Warriors matches.

Gorowa has also demanded that all home qualifiers for the 2015 Afcon be played at Barbourfields.
