The National Soccer League Board of Governors meeting that was scheduled for today, July 24, has been postponed.
Discussions for the resumption of the 2019/20 season are yet to be concluded, with the Premier Soccer League revealing in a statement last week that they were set to re-engage with stakeholders regarding an official date for football’s return.
The league had initially planned for a return to action this month, though the South African Football Association have brought forward August 01 as the the appropriate restart date given the current situation in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The BOG were expected to continue their meetings today, however, it has since been postponed to Monday, July 27 as the PSL’s chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza has suffered a family loss.
“Please note that today’s Board of Governors meeting has been postponed to Monday. The reasons are obvious,” Luxolo September, the PSL’s Senior Manager told the media.
Orlando Pirates confirmed the passing of Dr Khoza’s wife, Matina Elsie Khoza yesterday after being in and out of hospital in the last few years.
