A message from the Zim Premier League on Platinum vs Pirates
The Zimbabwe Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (CLPSL) has sent out a message to its reigning champions FC Platinum ahead of the CAF Champions League game against Orlando Pirates.
Pure Platinum welcome Pirates in Bulawayo in the Group B opener, with the likes of Esperance and Horoya still to come later in the competition.
The League’s encouraging message was published on the league’s Facebook account on Friday.
“We are rallying behind our champions FC Platinum.net as they face Orlando Pirates in the CAF Champions League group match at Barbourfields Stadium tomorrow. We wish them all the best,” it read.
It has been confirmed that the Bulawayo’s Barbourfields Stadium will be the match venue, rather than the traditional homeground of the Mandava Stadium which failed to pass CAF’s inspection.
