THE Zimbabwe Women’s Football (ZWF) has released its 2017 Women’s Soccer League fixtures following a cash injection by football governing body Zifa.

The fixtures were released by ZWF vice-chairperson Samukeliso Silengane last Friday, although the exact kick-off date remains undetermined.

The national Super League returns after a four-year absence due to squabbles that have been afflicting women’s football that at one time saw a split, with other teams choosing to play in an unrecognised parallel league run by disposed former chairperson Miriam Sibanda.

Bulawayo has five teams, Street Set, Inline Academy, Burrow Jets, New Orleans and Ubuntu from Cowdray Park.

Ubuntu last week came up with its leadership structure led by chairlady Melody Dube, who is deputised by Mthokozisi Ngwenya. It has five board members with one slot reserved for a potential sponsor.

According to the fixtures, Street Set, run by broadcaster Lee Mangena, will be at home to Masvingo Queens in their opening game, while Cowdray Park Queens aka Ubuntu, will take to the road to face Faith Drive.

Inline Academy play host to Gweru’s Chipembere Queens and a derby is in the offing when Borrow Jets clash with the once mighty New Orleans.

For the first time in the history of the national association and women’s football, Zifa bought playing kits, which include jerseys, sheen guards and boots for all the 16 Super League teams and also undertook to pay for transport fares as well as referees’ fees.
