PSL Set Record Straight On Fans Return To Stadiums

Following the country’s move to alert level one last month, there have been suggestions that this would see a possible return of spectators to the stadiums and now the Premier Soccer League issued a response on the matter.

Fans have been barred from entering stadiums since the return of the game in August last year following a lengthy hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Despite the number of infections in the country steadily decreasing, the PSL said in a statement that current regulations, which does not make provisions for any supporters – or media - will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.

“There have been suggestions, after the President’s address on Thursday 30 September 2021, that it might be possible to allow a limited number of spectators to attend upcoming PSL matches. Unfortunately, the new Disaster Management Act regulations continue to prohibit spectators at matches.

Section 69(10) of the regulations requires “strict adherence” to the provisions which have limited those permitted at matches to persons strictly necessary for the match.

Sub-section 69 (10) (d) expressly confirms that “no spectators are allowed at the venue of the sports match” and subsections 12 and 13 make attendance (and permitting attendance) a criminal offence.

It is important that all PSL supporters and fans understand this.

The League Covid-19 protocol and the process which regulates the persons who are permitted to attend matches will remain in place until such time as there are new regulatory changes.”
