Date and venues proposed for PSL return

Premiership

KickOff.com has gathered that Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship matches could resume on July 1.

Both the PSL and NFD were suspended in March due to the coronavirus outbreak and football authorities in the country have been formulating a plan of action to kick-off the season again.

According to information acquired by this website, a proposal has been put forward to host Premiership and Championship matches in two separate provinces.

"A proposal has been made to start the league again on July 1. The games will be played behind closed doors," a reliable source tells KickOff.com.

"Initially Northern Cape and Mpumalanga had been identified as the venues to host the games but they lack proper stadiums. Mpumalanga only has Mbombela Stadium.

"Rand Stadium, Orlando Stadium and Lucas Moripe Stadium have been proposed to host the PSL games while Olympia Park, Royal Bafokeng Stadium and Moruleng Stadium are expected to host the GladAfrica Championship games."

"That's news to me. There is nothing I can say about that," says PSL senior manager Lux September.

"You know there is a task team which was formed, and until we have an update from that task team there is really nothing I can say at all. I think you will appreciate the sensitivity around the whole thing."
