Subsequently, the Siya crew was made aware that the PSL’s acting CEO, Mato Madlala asked for patience as the executive committee tries to make sense of the government’s new regulations.

“Certain member clubs have raised issues of interpretation regarding the new regulations. The Executive Committee met yesterday, and, having regard to the representations due to be made to government by football generally, a further urgent meeting has been set for next Tuesday, by that time the Executive Committee will be in a position to convey to every member club precisely what has been resolved by South African football generally as well as the attitude of government to that position,” Madlala’s email said in part on Friday.

However, despite the green light given for football training to resume, Minister Mthethwa reiterated that contact sport would still not be allowed to resume play in level.
