Safa says football within amateur ranks remains suspended until government advises otherwise.
The call comes days after a player died during a match in Umkhanyakude region in KwaZulu-Natal.
“The association has in recent past urged law enforcement agents to strictly enforce this rule after numerous [Safa] regions reported the flouting of lockdown regulations by certain individuals.
“This week, Safa Umkhanyakude reported the death of a young football player in the Mtubatuba Local Football Association, who passed away while playing the game,” Safa said in a statement.
The region confirmed that the match was illegal and unsanctioned.
“As Safa Umkhanyakude, we were not aware of these games being played as we have pleaded with the community to not break government laws.
“We mourn – with the family, friends and the team – the passing of a future star,” said the region’s president, Jabulani Nxumalo.
“We urge all parents to not let their children go out and play football because all our leagues are observing government lockdown rules. I would like all our teams to respect these regulations and desist from playing in order to save lives. We will resume our leagues once the lockdown regulations are lifted.” – Safa
