NetOne used to bankroll the season opener, NetOne Charity Shield, which was not on the PSL calendar of activities this year with two semifinal matches of the Independence Cup kick- starting the league this year.
The top eight teams that will participate are Dynamos, Highlanders, Harare City, FC Platinum, CAPS United, Chicken Inn, How Mine and Triangle.
The dates of the first matches are yet to be finalised but sources said the matches might start this coming weekend with the league taking a sabbatical to mark the halfway mark.
