The Warriors have been indefinitely banned from hosting any international fixtures after CAF found that the nation's stadiums do not meet the required standards to host international matches. 

According to an official statement by ZIFA, the decision follows an inspection that was conducted by CAF in November last year which found that neither of the nation's Barbourfields, Mandava or National Sports Stadiums were up to standard.

The nation's football association has confirmed that they are considering appealing the matter to CAF, but that contingencies plans to play matches abroad are currently being put into place.

"We unreservedly apologise to all football stakeholders for inconveniences that the decision has brought," the official statement continued. 

|We are hopeful that everyone who has influence to expedite the process of bringing our teams back home will do their part. Meanwhile, we have also started the process of looking for an alternative venue in neighbouring countries to host our upcoming matches.
