    MASVINGO- Masvingo Provincial Hospital is set to build a state of the art sports club adjacent to Telone on a 5000 square meter piece of land provided by the City of Masvingo for free.
    Morefire FC for the Provincial Hospital staff approached the City Council for a piece of land for a soccer ground but after they were offered the land they decided to build a sports club to accommodate other sporting disciplines like volleyball, netball, tennis and cricket.
    This was said by the guest of honour, Dr Tinashe Manzungu at the fundraising dinner held at Flamboyant Hotel on Friday last week under the theme, ‘Promoting Health Through Sport’.
    “In 2001, as a way of promoting entertainment, health through sport and interaction with the community, Morefire FC was launched. Initially it was for hospital staff only and later the community was roped in. In 2004, the Club played in Division 2 with funds from the players and staff members. In 2018 due to the demand for other sporting disciplines like netball and volley ball, Morefire Sports Club was formed to cater for that.
    “The Club approached City Council who gladly offered the land and a grader to assist in clearing the land.
    “It is against this background that we decided to fundraise to construct the facilities which we believe will help to accomplish our vision,” said Manzungu.
    Manzungu who is also the chairman of the TM Group of Companies which include ZG Medical Aid Fund set the ball rolling as he donated RTGS$4 000, jerseys for the soccer team and balls.
    Zion Christian Church led by Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi pledged a grader for landscaping, Jadecon Engineering pledged quarry and sand for the construction of the facility while Chifen Engineering will provide bricks.
    Flamboyant Hotel provided the venue for the dinner, OK Mart and Pick n Pay provided beverages for the dinner and the Hospital administrator Andrew Sithole pledged free transport whenever the team travels for their games.
    Godhati Dunira, Dr …Mazarire, Dr Kudzai Masinire, Tapiwa Magarezano and many other individuals also pledged varying sums of money for the sporting facility.
