While the lack of games is causing a major issue in many other footballing nations due to the fact that matchday revenue has been completely wiped out, Premier Soccer League clubs are less affected by that income than they are by the PSL grants, TV deals and club sponsorships.

Though the grants and TV money are – as things stand, still being paid out, owners of clubs are thought to be worried about the situation regarding other forms of income, and Highlands Park say that they are taking a look at the situation closely, though haven’t made any decisions yet.

The Siya crew spoke to the co-chairman of the Lions of the North, Larry Brookstone, with regards to a possible change in the wage structure at the club, and while he wouldn’t comment too heavily on the matter, he did say, “Because of the COVID-19 situation, we are forced to relook at our whole expense base and at this stage, everything is still in discussion.”

At this point there is still no date set for when football in the Absa Premiership or GladAfrica Championship could return, but it is unlikely that anything will be able to happen within the next month given the lockdown and the fact that players will need a period to get back to match fitness once they’re allowed out again.
