Safa has, with immediate effect, suspended all non-professional football in the wake of rising cases of Covid-19 coronavirus infections.
“The suspension includes training sessions, courses, workshops and all matches. The matter will be reviewed by January 31 when the association will make further risk assessments and advice,” Safa said in statement on Friday.
It also noted that this extraordinary step was taken for the safety of players, technical staff, administrators, match officials, the media and all others involved in football matches and other related events.
The association said professional football would continue under the measures already being implemented by the PSL.
“This must however be done in compliance with the applicable protocols of government’s risk adjusted strategy of the Disaster Management Act with respect to the curfew and closure of venues and as it is further explained in the directives issues by the minister of sport, arts and culture,” Safa said.
