There’s no date yet, but professional football will soon be back in the spotlight. This follows a meeting on Thursday, during which PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza and Safa president Danny Jordaan handed government a task team report on protocols for the resumption of football. The report on the health and safety guidelines paves the way for the resumption of the sport in the country.
The joint liaison committee, which comprises PSL and Safa members, had tasked Khoza and Jordaan with presenting the report, Sports, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa’s office confirmed.
Thursday’s virtual meeting was a basic status update on the PSL’s concerted efforts to convince government that the league can safely restart play, which has been on hold since the middle of March due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
