DELIGHT as fans return to stadiums!

Premiership

Football fans will finally make a return to stadiums after the PSL on Tuesday announced that supporters will be allowed to attend live sporting matches.

All football lovers will be celebrating wildly as football teams let out a huge sigh of relief at the soccer body's welcome announcement.

President Cyril Ramaphosa had recently announced that outdoor venues will be permitted to host up to 50% of their capacity.

Speaking at a PSL press conference, chairperson Irvin Khoza gave the green light for fans to finally return to stadiums since 16 March 2020.

"The executive committee has today set out the steps to be taken with the return of fans while emphasizing guidelines to be followed," Khoza said.

"The member clubs are encouraged to adhere to these guidelines to ensure the return of fans in a responsible and safe fashion.

"The league has earmarked the Nedbank Cup quarterfinal matches of the 8th and 9th of April as the first matches that will be open to spectators.

"It will be difficult to start this weekend, as I've indicated that most of those matches have been categorised and approved.

"I must emphasise that the issue of proof of vaccination is very important for supporters when they attend.

"You will be required to provide your vaccination certificate and I.D. This is crucial as we are earmarking a 100% capacity return to stadiums for all fans.

"Also crucially, we need to make clear that we value all the fans' support over all these years, that's why we had to take these precautionary steps to follow safety guidelines."

The first Nedbank Cup quarterfinal will see TTM host SuperSport United on Friday, 8 April at Thohoyandou Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:00.
