ZIFA has acquired new offices at Alexandra Park in Harare following the release of $500,000 by world football governing body Fifa.

Association president Cuthbert Dube said he was happy Zifa would finally move out of its current ‘house of horror’ base – so christened because of the match fixing scandals that took place between 2006 and 2009 under Wellington Nyatanga’s leadership.

“From Harare, we are moving to Bulawayo where we would build new headquarters for the region. I want to leave a legacy after my tenure,” said Dube.

“We have the agreements for the Alex Park offices and we are not stopping and I am pleased Fifa is supporting us throughout this programme. We are fully behind Sepp Blatter and he we are going to vote for him next year.”

Zifa will receive a grant of $250,000 from Fifa this year plus $500,000 as a bonus from the 2014 World Cup that is taking place in Brazil. This is outside the grants for the new buildings in Harare and Bulawayo.

In just four years, the association has already built the Zifa Village and Conference Centre in Mt Hampden and plan to fully commercialise it to generate more income.

The village’s land was acquired almost two decades ago by then Zifa chairman Leo Mugabe but successive leaders diverted Fifa grants to cater for the Warriors commitments. The Warriors do not receive any government funding.
