Bulawayo Corporate Social Soccer League is set to unveil two tournaments in its schedule next season, a move that is meant to invite new participants in the league.
BCSSL proved to be a vibrant force in social soccer in the country and hopes are high that its wings will be spread and incorporate teams outside Bulawayo so that it can be a national league.
Speaking at the end of season prize presentations in Bulawayo, the league’s Secretary General Engineer Albert Mkandla expressed the need to spice up the league as a way of inviting new membership.
“Next season we will have two tournaments, the Challenge cup and Memorial Tournament despite the economic challenge we are facing as a nation,” said Mkandla.
The secretary general called upon all teams’ participation in the league and to uphold the values that were laid during the inception of BCSSL more than a decade ago.
“We have to uphold our core values which are to socialise and maintain our health as the working class. We are looking forward to have an increase in membership next season,” he added.
The league was started as a wellness program meant to help the working class in the City of kings, and later developed into a well functional league.
All teams in the league were presented with prize money. ZRP Donnington was presented with a shield and prize money for coming up tops in the league, while three outstanding referees received their prizes.
A new stirring committee was announced which will oversee the running of the league come 2020, which include Chairman: George Tigere, Secretary General: Albert Nkulumo Mkandla, Vice Chairman Josiah Magaya, Treasurer Onias Musoni, Fixtures Secretary: Leo
