Zimbabwe to host 2014 COSAFA Cup

ZIMBABWE have been handed the mandate to host the 2014 Cosafa Castle Cup for the second time in three editions.

The dates for the tournament are yet to be set but could be held before next year’s World Cup since no Southern African country has qualified for the global football showcase.

Zimbabwe last hosted the tournament in 2009 before the regional contest endured a three-year absence between 2010 and last year.

Zambia played host to the returning edition this year which they eventually won.

In October Cosafa asked Zimbabwe if it could again host the tournament and Zifa agreed to the offer.

Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze said they convinced Cosafa that they have the capacity to host the tournament.

“When Cosafa approached us we did not hesitate to accept the offer. We will host this tournament with dignity like we did in the past,” Mashingaidze said.

He said Cosafa needed government guarantee which they got.

“We have all the infrastructure needed. We are happy we have the full backing of our government and we believe the new Sports Ministry will come in hand like they have promised us.”

Rufaro Stadium and Barbourfields hosted games in the 2009 edition which Zimbabwe won.
