His Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa is set to officially open the inaugural edition of the Zim Afro T10 at a glittering ceremony happening at Harare Sports Club this Thursday afternoon.
Local music superstar Jah Prayzah is leading the entertainment cast for the historic day, with talented songstress Feli Nandi also billed to perform alongside famous Bollywood actress and model Elnaaz Norouzi.
In order to allow for a grand opening ceremony, the match between Harare Hurricanes and Bulawayo Braves that was originally scheduled for 1900 hours this Thursday has now been postponed to another day.
However, the rest of the Zim Afro T10 fixtures remain unchanged, with three matches set to take place at Harare Sports Club on Friday.
Scheduled for 20-29 July, with all matches being played at Harare Sports Club, the tournament will see five teams – Durban Qalandars, Cape Town Samp Army, Harare Hurricanes, Bulawayo Braves and Johannesburg Buffaloes – fighting it out for honours.
It will be entertaining galore every day up to the final, with Jah Prayzah, Alick Macheso, Sulumani Chimbetu, Nutty O, Janet Manyowa and Hope Masike among some of Zimbabwe’s top musicians set to perform during the tournament.
Entrance into the opening ceremony will be free of charge, while matchday tickets have been pegged at US$2 for the general stands, US$5 for the embankment and US$10 to enjoy the action from the Centurion.
