Zimbabwe’s senior national rugby team will take on the higher-ranked Dutch national rugby side, affectionately known as The Oranges at the Rugby Stadium Amsterdam on June 25.

The two teams were initially scheduled to clash in November 2020, but were forced to shelve the game due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After an almost two-year wait, the match is finally set to go ahead and it will come at an ideal time too for the Sables, who are seeking to qualify for their first Rugby World Cup since 1991.

Pfeka.com has created a Pfeka Brand Rugby Fans Jersey for the love of the game. The rugby team had, an official team Jersey, signed and auctioned to raise money and this was bought for €300 by one of the Rugby followers, a Zimbabwean based in Europe, Kudzi Kambarami. This was presented at a pre-game party Pfeka hosted in Amsterdam for the boys and their management team.

Pfeka.com managing director, Eglet Nyabvure, said, “We are excited to be part of this dream as we are Zimbabweans first and nothing beats a sadza meal and gochi-gochi on foreign land. We rally and support the Sables for the Saturday game and all the upcoming games.”

Former Zimbabwe ambassador to the USA, Ammon Machingambi Mutembwa, who is now in charge of the embassy in Holland, graced the event.
