PSL Mid-Season Break? Maybe Not…

Just how the remainder of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season will be structured remains to be seen, with 54 games to be played and contracts running out…

The entire Premier Soccer League was brought to a standstill in March when the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent nationwide lockdown meant that no more games were able to be played at any level in South African football.

With league titles, top eight spots, relegation and promotion still to be decided, the PSL have stated that they are eager to make sure games are finalised by the end of June when player contracts expire and new deals elsewhere kick in, but it remains to be seen whether that will be feasible.

Another question that’s been asked is whether players would need time to get themselves in shape before returning to action, but Bidvest Wits’ Chief Operating Officer, Jon Schloss, says that a ‘mid-season break’ has not been discussed.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Schloss explained, “There was no discussion regarding a mid-season break or training camp once football resumes after the lockdown… I think that there was no need to have that discussion at the time because we were all waiting to see what happens.

“But I do think that once we do resume there won’t be much time for that. Clubs may be given a week or two weeks to get fit, but we certainly won’t be given a month to prepare the team.”
