Former Chelsea and West Ham manager Avram Grant is expected in Zimbabwe in October for the inaugural Zimbabwe Football Forum in Harare.
The Zimbabwe Football Forum which is expected to run on 14 October will bring in a number of think tanks in football with the aim of unlocking value in local football.
Terrence Mulenga of Tinmanh Sports who are the brains behind the football forum said Zimbabwe is lagging behind in global football trends hence the need to bring in experts that will help local football to grow in line with international standards.
“We haven’t really commercialized the game, we haven’t really professionalised the game. We are still behind, infact we haven’t really started. So this is a platform where we are going to explore ways we can create an industry out of football,” Mulenga said.
“What intend to do is to promote investment, innovation and creativity in our football industry. To help us achieve this, we have external experts coming in to share their experience and knowledge. From the region we have South African legend Doctor Khumalo coming in to support and give us his experience.”
