As sporting activities and athletes are still anxious about when will fields be open again, South African football body South Africa Football Association (SAFA) and Premier Soccer League (PSL) are yet to meet to discuss a way forward on resuming of play.
In a statement released by SAFA, they said they met with National Soccer League (NSL) on Friday and decided to postpone the meeting to Monday following a request by a special member.
“We had a very cooperative and cordial meeting and we mutually agreed to have a follow-up meeting on Monday to deliberate issues with regards to return to training and play,” said SAFA CEO, Tebogo Motlanthe.
On Monday meeting, the Association will bring the Head of Referees to expound on matters of testing and training of the match officials.
“The Association has never been against the resumption of football but we have always emphasised the need to do so under a safe environment and in line with the JLC compliance resolutions,” added Motlanthe.
