Prophet Walter Magaya, the founder and owner of Yadah, has generously offered his newly-commissioned facility, The Heart Stadium, to Ngezi Platinum Stars and Dynamos for their upcoming CAF competitions next year.
Despite Ngezi Platinum Stars securing their first Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title and Dynamos ending their 9-year trophy drought with the Chibuku Super Cup, the absence of a suitable stadium in Zimbabwe for CAF matches might force them to play abroad—a scenario Magaya aims to prevent.
The first phase of The Heart Stadium was officially commissioned by President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week. Magaya is confident that it will be fully ready for CAF matches by the first week of February, enabling Ngezi and Dynamos to benefit from the state-of-the-art facility.
Magaya is actively facilitating a conducive environment for CAF competitions by planning additional changing rooms specifically designed for CAF events. Expressing his love for various Zimbabwean teams, including Ngezi Platinum Stars and Dynamos, Magaya invites any team in the country to use The Heart Stadium.
The stadium’s name reflects its inclusivity, emphasizing that it is not exclusively reserved for Yadah but welcomes any Zimbabwean team venturing into African safari campaigns. Magaya’s gesture aims to establish a local venue for CAF matches, fostering a supportive environment for Zimbabwean football on the continental stage.
