PSL games back in action

By Jabulane Khumalo

After a break off four months, the Absa Premiership League returns as the Premier Soccer
League looks set to finally conclude the 2019/20 season.
The PSL board members agreed to resume the league on August 8. This is after they held
a virtual meeting on July 28 that the remaining matches will be played behind closed
doors. Players will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of all those involved.


“The PSL will resume first with the Nedbank Cup semi-final clashes, then followed by the
Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship fixtures. Dates and kick-off times of these
fixtures will be confirmed in due course. Football is back, and it almost feels like this is the
beginning of a new season, rather than the resumption of the current one. It is, after all,
almost August, a time when under normal circumstances, teams would be showcasing
new kits, players and preparing for the start of a new season, alas 2020 has been far from
normal. These are extraordinary times, after all. Abnormal is the new normal,” said PSL
Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza.


The PSL also confirmed that all players and staff from the Absa Premiership and
GladAfrica Championship teams will all be housed in a Biologically Safe Environment
(BSE). These are extra precautions the league is taking to ensure the safety of all those
involved. All those going into the BSE bubble will be required to undergo testing 48 hours
before entering the bubble, where they will remain until the conclusion of all matches.

Meanwhile, teams have relocated to their new homes for the remainder of the season. TS
Sporting will be based in Tsakane Stadium in the East Rand, Gauteng. Provincial rivals,
TS Galaxy will be at the Wits Rugby Club while Mbombela United will be at UJ Soweto
Campus.
