Bulawayo giants Highlanders Football Club will this Sunday, 12 March 2017 take on FC Platinum at Luveve Stadium in the second semi-final of the Commander ZNA Charities Soccer Shield.

The match which was earlier scheduled for 26 February at Barbourfields Stadium, was postponed due to water logging of the pitch and will now be played at Luveve Stadium.

The winners will play Caps United who have already booked their place in the final after beating Dynamos 3-1 at the National Sports Stadium on 26 February.

Bosso are the defending champions of the tournament after they dismissed Harare City FC 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 stalemate to land the trophy last year.

The teams have everything to play for as they will be vying for the first silverware for 2017 and the $12 000.00 prize money for the tournament winners and $8 000.00 for the runners up.

Gate charges for the match have been pegged at $3 for the Rest of the ground and $5 for VIP.

The Commander ZNA's Charities Soccer Shield is one of the major fundraising events lined up by the Army in its quest to assist the needy. Other fundraising events for this year are the Charities Ball to be held in Harare on 7 April, the Bakers' Inn and Army Charities Dinner Dance and Golf Tournament to take place in Bulawayo on the 1 and 2 September and the Charity Horse Race to be held on the 7 October.

The ZNA Charities has five charitable organisations which are; Tsanga Lodge Convalescent Centre, Army Widows and Orphans Benevolent Fund, ZNA Benevolent Fund, ZNA Schools Welfare Trust Fund as well as the ZNA Patients Welfare Fund.
