Kick off 3pm.
The other matches will be played on Saturday and Sunday.
Last season, Chisumbanje-based side Greenfuel won promotion into the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after emerging victorious during the 2022 campaign.
The league has four new teams in the form of Rusitu, Midway, Bikita Minerals, and FC Hunters.
Also back in the league is Tenax FC, who were relegated from the PSL last season after a poor showing in the elite league.
Tenax finished in position 17 on the final log standings.
