PSL BOARD OF GOVERNORS MEDIA STATEMENT

The 32 member clubs of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) met today, 19 March 2020 in Kempton Park for an Extra-Ordinary Board of Governors meeting to deliberate the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Below is the resolution of the Board of Governors:

The NSL values the lives of all our people. We view the health and safety of our players, staff and stakeholders as paramount.

Whilst our intention is to complete the season by no later than 30th June 2020, because of the existing uncertainties in our country we shall remain flexible.

The Board of Governors has mandated the Executive Committee and the appointed Task Team to take all possible measures to ensure that the NSL’s leagues resume in compliance with the directives issued by the State President with the support and alignment of the National Government.

This follows the meeting that was held with the Minister of Sports, Arts & Culture and further consultations held at this Board of Governors meeting with the Ministries of Health and the SAPS.
