Bulawayo based Chicken  Inn  has been denied a chance to defend the Independence Cup after Zifa shockingly  handpicked Highlanders, FC Platinum, Dynamos and Caps United for the semi-finals.

Last year, Chicken Inn beat Highlanders 2-1 to lift the cup at the National Sports Stadium in Harare.

Zifa communications manager Xolisani Gwesela defended the association's decision.

"The Independence Cup is an invitational tournament where participants are selected at the tournament organisers' discretion.
"The build up to the 2017 edition of the Independence Cup gets underway this Sunday, with high profile semi-final clashes set for Bulawayo and Harare.

"The final of the Independence Cup, which is an integral part of the annual national Independence celebrations, will be played at the National Sports Stadium on the 18th of April," Gwesela is quoted saying by the Chronicle.

Highlanders will take on FC Platinum at Barbourfields stadum while Dynamos lock horns with Caps United.

Gate charges for the semi-finals have been set at $3 for the rest of the ground, $5 for the VIP and $10 for VVIP.
