ZIFA has been fined US$10,000 after the senior women's football team, the Mighty Warriors failed to fulfil an Olympic qualifier against Ivory Coast two weeks ago.

The local association failed to raise the $34,000 needed for airfares to West Africa.

Ivory Coast were awarded the match on a 3-0 score-line and now proceed to the final qualifying round.

The Fifa statement, released on Wednesday read: "The qualifying match for the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016 that was scheduled for 19 July 2015 between Côte d’Ivoire and Zimbabwe has been declared a 3-0 forfeit victory for Côte d’Ivoire.

"FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings after Zimbabwe failed to travel to Côte d’Ivoire for the match, which was the first leg of the third round of Olympic qualifiers for the African zone.

"The FIFA Disciplinary Committee decided that the match should be forfeited, in accordance with article 31 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, and ordered the Zimbabwe Football Association to pay a fine of CHF 10,000.

"The relevant parties were notified of the decision on Wednesday 29 July."
