2019/20 PSL start date confirmed

The Premier Soccer League has confirmed when the 2019/20 campaign will start.

The new campaign, which will see new boys Stellenbosch FC included in the fixtures, will start on the weekend of August 2 and 3. This is a week after the Carling Black Label match between Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at FNB Stadium on July 27.

The PSL has also confirmed that the MTN8 round of eight matches will be played the following week after the start of the league campaign.

Most of the teams will be getting their pre-season preparations underway in the coming weeks. Highlands Park got back to training this morning.

It could prove to be another difficult season of trying to put together the fixtures, due to the participation of three top-flight teams in the CAF competitions.

Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates will take part in the Champions League, while Bidvest Wits will play in the Confederation Cup and will be joined by National First Division outfit TS Galaxy.
