    - The 2014 Chibuku Super Cup winners FC Platinum will square it off against defending champions Harare City in a potential thriller at a venue to be confirmed.
    The games will be played on the weekend of October 23 and 24.
    In a draw held in the capital on Tuesday this week the Norman 'Muchina Wemajuzi' Mapeza coached FC Platinum will battle it out against Moses 'Bambo' Chunga's municipality bankrolled side in the semi final.
    The fixture will be a reincarnation of the 2014 Chibuku Super Cup final match between the two sides which ended 3-1 on penalties in favor of FC Platinum.
    The two sides will be facing off for the second time this season after they met in the Premier Soccer League encounter where they drew nil all at Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane with both sides displaying quality football.
    The draw was conducted by PSL and Delta Beverages representatives on Tuesday night.
    The other semi final match will pit Highlanders FC coached by Erol Akbay against Ngezi Platinum coached by former Dynamos son Tonderai Ndiraya who is enjoying a purple patch at the platinum miners.
    Akbay side will be looking for a third successive win over the new boys whom they have thrashed 4-1 and 1-2 in their previous encounter in the PSL games.
    FC Platinum will be going head to head with Harare giants after scraping a win against Triangle FC 1-0 at Gibbo Stadium on Sunday after Makai Kawashu in the 77th minute converted Charles Sibanda's acute cross into the net.
    Harare City sailed through to the semifinal round after surviving a penalty shootout against ZPC Kariba which ended 4-2 after regular time ended in 2 all draw.
    "It's an interesting draw against Harare City because we are playing them in the league as well. We want to win again this tournament, so we are confident of progressing.
    We are going to prepare hard for this match," said Chido Chizondo FC Platinum spokesperson.
    FC Platinum under the stewardship of Muchina Wemajuzi has proved to be a force to reckon with leading the league with 51points while Harare City sits on position seven with 35.
    "FC Platinum is a good side and we look forward to the match as it holds our chance to win something this season," said Harare City spokesperson Hope Chizuzu.sport news.
