Precedent Set, Chiefs To Be Denied?

Kaizer Chiefs' request to have their DStv Premiership matches postponed could fall on deaf ears, if history is anything to go by.

Amakhosi are due to play Cape Town City at FNB Stadium on Saturday, but have requested to have their upcoming four matches postponed following a Covid-19 outbreak at The Village, which has seen 31 members in Naturena being affected

During the 2020/21 campaign, GladAfrica Championship side Cape Umoya, who were since sold to the owners of Venda Football Academy, were found guilty of failing to honour their fixture against Cape Town Spurs at Parow Park on January 3.

Cape Umoya tried to get the game postponed due to the a large number of positive Covid-19 cases in their squad, but the request fell on deaf ears. It's understood that the PSL executive committee took a decision in August last year which say that the positive Covid-19 cases are no reason to justify the postponement of football matches.

The league rules say clubs only need a minimum seven players for a game to go ahead, and the worst case scenario for Chiefs would be to call up players from the Diski Challenge side to make up the numbers for their matchday squad for the City clash. This, though, is if their request is denied by the PSL.
