Share the article below

By Lungelo Ndhlovu Zimbabwe Football Association assembly members held an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting on 7 January 2017 in Harare where they agreed that TWO (2) teams will be relegated from the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for the season which ended in November 2016 while FOUR (4) teams will be promoted from the regional leagues to play in the 2017 PSL season.
The congress also agreed that there shall be an amendment to article 21 of the ZIFA constitution which deals with the number of delegates who constitute the ZIFA assembly since the resolution made at the meeting automatically increases the number of delegates from 62 to 64.
With the PSL relegating two teams and four regional champions being promoted, the top-flight league will have 18 teams for the 2017 season.
