Comitis lauds massive PSL decision


Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has lauded the PSL for their decision to finish the 2019/20 campaign out on the field of play.

League chairman Irvin Khoza confirmed on Monday afternoon that local football will return on August 8 with the Nedbank Cup semi-finals the first fixture of the new calendar.

And Comitis has welcomed the decision after weeks of speculation that the campaigns of the top two tiers of South African football may be declared null and void.

With seven games remaining this season for the 10th-placed Citizens, they are four points adrift of the top eight and as many points clear of the drop zone  – which bodes for a thrilling season finale.

"I think that we are all really excited to hear that we are returning back to the playing field under the circumstances, with the many uncertainties within the whole world at the moment," Comitis said.

"To know that you have a date to resume football and especially to resume the current season towards completion is obviously on a sporting basis the fairest way to complete the decision on promotion and relegation.

"I'm glad the PSL, the board of governors and the chairman made the decision in unison. We look forward to the return. Our team is ready, we have prepared for this. It's been a long time coming and we are very grateful."
