The Premier Soccer League have confirmed further details pertaining to the broadcasting of Orlando Pirates' upcoming match against Bidvest Wits.
The Buccaneers have been ordered to play two home matches behind closed doors, with one of those suspended for a period of 24 months, following their supporters' unruly behaviour at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in February 2017.
This sanction will come into effect in their next Absa Premiership clash against outgoing champions Bidvest Wits at the Orlando Stadium next Wednesday evening.
While the Bucs faithful may not be allowed into the stadium precinct, the league have since confirmed that it will not be a complete blackout.
"The game behind closed doors will be on television, with print journalists and TV crews allowed into the stadium," Luxolo September, PSL's head of communications, tells KickOff.com.
With Pirates still in with a mathematical chance in the championship race, The Ghost will welcome the news.
