CAPE TOWN – Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Irvin Khoza on Monday afternoon announced the suspension of all midweek and weekend league matches.

This includes the crunch match between Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

The decision comes a day after the announcement of stringent measures by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of the measures announced by the government on Sunday evening includes a ban on the congregation of more than one hundred people at a single venue.

Dr Khoza said that the suspension was for this week only. Further measures will be discussed at a meeting on Thursday.

Khosa urged supporters not to travel to matches and to cancel hotel bookings for this week until further notice.

He also urged teams to continue training until further measures are announced by the PSL.

More details to follow.
