Zimbabwean Referee To Officiate Champions League Match
Zimbabwean referee Brighton Chimene and his assistants have been selected to officiate the Orlando Pirates’ CAF Champions League football match in Johannesburg on Sunday.
The Buccaneers host Congo side Diables Noirs de Brazzaville at Orlando Stadium.
He will be assisted by Tafadzwa Nkala and Edgar Rumeck. Lawrence Zimondi is the fourth official.
Chimene has handled matches in the World Cup qualifiers as well as the Champions League qualifiers since the international calendar got underway.
Zimbabwean referees have been inactive for the greater part of 2020 and 2021 as a result of the suspension of football and they have been working harder to ensure good condition and physical fitness with individual training programmes.
