The Premier Soccer League's meeting to decide the fate of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup and GladAfrica Championship campaigns has been postponed.

Clubs had been preparing for kick-off on 18 July following a previous meeting, but this was put off after South African football motherbody SAFA proposed 1 August as the earliest restart date.

This required further deliberations between the PSL and all stakeholders, including sponsors, before an agreement could be reached with the Association.

However, following the passing of League chairman Irvin Khoza's wife on Thursday morning, those discussions have now been deferred to Monday, 27 July.
