The Sunshine City Boys will be registered with the Confederation of African Football as one of Zimbabwe’s two representatives in Pan African Football for the year 2016.

Harare City Football Club have booked their ticket to represent Zimbabwe in the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup.

This follows their unexpected 2-1 win over Dynamos at the National Sports Stadium on Saturday.

The Sunshine City Boys will be registered with the Confederation of African Football as one of Zimbabwe’s two representatives in Pan African Football for the year 2016.

The Confederation of African Football have given all national football associations up to November 30 to register clubs to represent their countries in the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup.

At the moment, Zimbabwe has one representative in each competition while others have two due to the poor performance of local clubs in the past three or so years

Harare City coach Taurayi Mangwiro is happy that the team finally got some form of silverware after a Chibuku Super Cup campaign that saw them plunder 13 goals in previous three rounds.

Mangwiro says the Chibuku Super Cup win could serve as a good omen for the Sunshine Boys for the future ahead.

He says they are aiming for a higher position in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League race in which they are currently seventh on the table.

However, Dynamos coach Tonderayi Ndiraya thinks his team deserved to be in Pan African football but is blaming too many missed scoring opportunities.

Ndiraya says from the look of things Dynamos might end up without anything to show for their effort in 2015.

For their effort, Harare City got $75,000 while Dynamos as the losing finalists received $50,000.

Action this week returns to the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.
