“Until further notice, the PSL Covid protocol continues to limit attendance to 165 persons required at the match. The Executive committee has targeted the MTN8 final on the 30th October as the ideal match to test the protocols that will be put in place,

“The Executive committee will again meet within the next 7-10 days to access the outcome of the consultation process. The PSL will communicate the approach that will be implemented after the meeting.

Meanwhile, the league governing body also encourage football fans to get vaccinated so that things can eventually return to normalcy.

“The PSL calls upon all supporters to support the Government’s stance on the importance of vaccinations and the achievement of herd immunity. The sooner sufficient South Africans are vaccinated, the sooner supporters will be able to return in numbers,” said the statement.
