Johannesburg – The PSL is considering postponing the final of the Telkom Knockout cup competition, following the death of former president Nelson Mandela.
“I've spoken to the CEO of the Premier Soccer League (Brand de Villiers) this morning and he will speak to the chairman (of the PSL Irvin Khoza),” general manager of football Derek Blanckensee said on Friday.
“At the moment we don't know if the game will go ahead. Nothing has changed yet, but we are waiting for direction.”
President Jacob Zuma announced that Mandela died on Thursday night at his Houghton, Johannesburg, home surrounded by family.
Orlando Pirates will take on Platinum Stars in the final, which was scheduled to kick-off at 8.15pm on Saturday. – Sapa
