A packed Barbourfields Stadium left football clubs with a lot of take always on tapping into potential revenue from their fan base.

With the last capacity crowd having been witnessed during the CAF Champions league match between FC Platinum and Orlando Pirates in 2019, Barbourfields Stadium was a sea of black, blue and white as Highlanders clashed with Dynamos in the Independence Cup this Monday.

The huge crowd which provided the icing on the cake during the country’s 42nd Independence celebrations raised hopes that the two football powerhouses can leverage on their huge fan base for potential revenue.

Coming on the backdrop of poor attendance in recent matches, Highlanders Chief Executive officer Ronald Moyo said there is hope for a better future.

“With the last capacity crowd having been witnessed during the CAF Champions league match between FC Platinum and Orlando Pirates in 2019, Barbourfields stadium was a sea of black, blue and white as Highlanders clashed with Dynamos in the Independence Cup this Monday,” said Mr Moyo.

Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya shared the same sentiments saying there is no football without the proverbial twelfth man.

“We graciously accept our defeat but more importantly we were excited to see the crowd. It was a first for the majority of my boys to play in front of such a big crowd but I am happy they were equal to the task. We need that twelfth man week in week out in our games,” said coach Ndiraya.

The twelfth man has been the heart beat for the giants of local football creating a conducive atmosphere for corporates to come on board.
