WOMEN’S Super League champions Herentals Queens are set to travel to the City of Kings for a curtain raiser clash against Amakhosikazi before the Chibuku Super Cup final on Sunday.
Amakhosikazi are the Bulawayo Chiefs women’s side.
The Chibuku Super Cup will pit Bulawayo Chiefs versus Herentals – the men’s sides that brushed off competition from 16 other Premier Soccer League teams to meet in the finals at Barbourfields Stadium.
For the first time, ladies teams will curtain raise the knockout tournament finals. It’s good for us to have this opportunity. It’s a big stage and l believe we are ready to put up a good show. Herentals Queens are a good side playing in the topflight but we are confident with the players we have that we are going to be competitive.
“This game will give us pointers as to what we should expect when we play in the Super League next year,” said Amakhosikazi coach Evans Netha.
Herentals Queens are well aware that they are travelling to Bulawayo to meet a team that has not lost a match in the Southern Women’s Soccer League.
“We know a bit about their history, they haven’t lost a single match in their local league so it’s good that we are going to be playing against a competitive side,” said Herentals Queens coach Simbarashe Dedza.
