Kaizer Chiefs made an urgent call to Amakhosi supporters as South Africa remains in the grip of self-isolation due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
The Glamour Boys have already confirmed that they have closed down their academy temporarily as well as shutting their retail stores, and they want their fans to follow their lead when it comes to meetings and gatherings while there are no football games on.
Having stated that there will be no football until at least May, the South African Football Association seem to have ensured that there will be no live games to watch for at least a couple of weeks, and Chiefs want their fans safe during this difficult period.
A statement on the club’s website read, “In this uncertain time of the Coronavirus outbreak, we are urging Kaizer Chiefs supporters to take care and observe all the prescribed precautionary measures to avoid contracting and spreading of the pandemic.
“During this period, we discourage Kaizer Chiefs supporters and branches from gathering and holding any meetings. This is in accordance with the statement issued on 15 March by President Cyril Ramaphosa on measures to combat COVID-19 pandemic.”
Chiefs are currently top of the Absa Premiership table, and will be eager to get things back underway when it’s safe in order to try and end the longest trophy drought in the club’s history.
