BAOBAB Sta­dium in Mhon­doro will stage the 2016 Chibuku Su­per Cup fi­nal fea­tur­ing hosts Ngezi Plat­inum Stars and FC Plat­inum on Novem­ber 5, the Premier Soc­cer League has an­nounced.

The win­ners will book a ticket to rep­re­sent Zim­babwe in the 2017 edi­tion of the Caf Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup.

FC Plat­inum booked their place in the fi­nal fol­low­ing a con­vinc­ing 3-0 drub­bing of Harare City at Man­dava Sta­dium, while Ngezi Plat­inum shocked a con­fi­dent High­landers 1-0 at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium on Sun­day.

Now in its third year, the Chibuku Su­per Cup fi­nal has been hosted in three dif­fer­ent prov­inces since its in­cep­tion.

It was first staged in the Mid­lands prov­ince where FC Plat­inum de­feated Harare City and last sea­son it was played at the Na­tional Sports Sta­dium where Harare City beat Dy­namos 2-1.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pe­ti­tion rules, the match will go into ex­tra time if the two teams are dead­locked after 90 min­utes, and if there is no win­ner, the game will be de­cided through the dreaded penalty shootouts.

Win­ners of this year’s cup will walk away with $75 000 and the los­ing fi­nal­ist will pocket $50 000.
