PSL postpone fixtures for COSAFA


The MTN8 Final will be played on September 20, but aside from players from the two teams involved in that clash, the new Bafana Bafana coach will be able to select players from the rest of the clubs, giving South Africa an opportunity to field their strongest squad in years.

The tournament falls outside of the FIFA calendar, meaning clubs are not obliged to release players, but having made a special window of opportunity for them to do so, it is likely that most will.

This is especially important for the national team as the COSAFA Cup falls between the second and third rounds of qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. 

It will give the coaches of the respective COSAFA nations additional time to work with their home-based players at least.
