Zimbabwe have been banned from hosting any international football matches until urgent work has been carried out on 3 of their biggest stadiums.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rules that the Barbourfields, Mandava and the National Sports Stadium (NSS) and not up to the standard required to host international matches. The ruling comes after issues raised in a report late last year were not addressed.

Zimbabwe will now be forced to find a new venue in a different country for their African Nations qualifier against Algeria in March.
