Giants set for Bob Super Cup



Every year when the country’s president Robert Bob Mugabe celebrates a birthday, there is a Bob Super Cup that is organised.

Last year the tournament was played by four teams with semi-finals and finals. However, this year it will be played by two teams on a home and away final basis.

The organisers have chosen Zimbabwe’s two oldest clubs in Dynamos and Highlanders to play in the Bob 89.

The first leg will be played on 10 February at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo, which is home to Highlanders, and the return leg will take place on 24 February, three days after the president’s birthday on 21 February, at Rufaro Stadium in Harare – home to DeMbare.

Stan Kasukuwere, who is leading the organising committee, said that they know the first leg will be played on the same day with the Afcon Cup final but they already looked into that. Kasukuwere said the Bob 89 game will start at 3pm while the Afcon finals only start at 8pm.

“We thought of that and that’s why we had to play the Bob 89 much earlier so that we give the supporters who want to watch the Afcon Cup finals a chance to go back home and watch the game on TV. It is the perfect day for the Super Cup to start and we are looking forward to two great games this year,” Kasukuwere said.

The inaugural Bob Super Cup was played in 2011 and Dynamos were the winners, beating CAPS United. Last year it was Bob 88 and was won by FC Platinum who beat Hwange Mine in the finals.
