PSL Confirm Bad News For SA Football Fans
The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that fans will continue to not be allowed to enter stadiums once local football returns after the international break.
There were hopes the PSL would allow fans to return after SAFA insisted they will allow vaccinated fans to attend the home match against Ethiopia on 12 October.
However, the PSL have now come out and stated that the Disaster Management Act continues to prohibit fans from attending games inside the stadiums.
“There have been suggestions, after the President’s address on Thursday 30 September 2021, that it might be possible to allow a limited number of spectators to attend upcoming PSL matches,” the statement read.
“Unfortunately, the new Disaster Management Act regulations continue to prohibit spectators at matches.
“Section 69(10) of the regulations requires “strict adherence” to the provisions which have limited those permitted at matches to persons strictly necessary for the match.
“Sub-section 69 (10) (d) expressly confirms that “no spectators are allowed at the venue of the sports match” and subsections 12 and 13 make attendance (and permitting attendance) a criminal offence.
“It is important that all PSL supporters and fans understand this. The League Covid-19 protocol and the process which regulates the persons who are permitted to attend matches will remain in place until such time as there are new regulatory changes.“
