Chicken Inn beat Harare City 3-1 on Saturday at Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo to clinch the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title with an unassailable 58 points.
Rivals FC Platinum lost the battle for honors when they drew 1-1 with Caps United while title contenders Dynamos’ 2-0 win over Chapungu was too late for the championship.
Chicken Inn brought to an end Dembare’s four-year dominance of the premier league. The Game Cocks needed a win to outpace their opponents and FC Platinum’s lucklustre performance was good news for the Bulawayo side.
With only one game remaining for the three top clubs, Dynamos and FC Platinum can only amass a maximum of 57 points.
