The 2017 Castle Lager Premiership season is due to start in just under two weeks but Rufaro Stadium is in a deplorable state.

The artificial turf was removed and  meant to be replaced with natural grass.

However, the famous Harare stadium pitch is far from being ready and could cause headache for the PSL.

According to reports, the turf was said to have become hard, brittle, slippery and dangerous to football players some of them who are sustaining injuries.

The artificial turf was erected in 2008 through the ZIFA-FIFA Goal Project and city of Harare partnership.

The turf was installed for easier maintenance and its environmental friendliness.

Rufaro's synthetic turf called Extreme Turf, is supposed to be restored after every three years but that has not been the case at the city stadium that could have led to its deterioration.
