The Premier Soccer League (PSL) and the South African Football Association (SAFA) have been under the microscope since the suspension of football in March of this year, and once again the apparent rift between football’s governing bodies has come under scrutiny.
The disagreement concerns the date and venues for the proposed resumption of the Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship. The PSL’s hopes for a July 18th return were rejected by SAFA, and PSL supporters are growing frustrated with the continued divide.
One fan vented his frustrations on SL Radio’s Fan Reaction Show; “SAFA & The PSL are playing with us. Why don’t they sit and discuss amongst themselves, and then come back and tell us the conclusion?
“The only problem in RSA football is SAFA, even the poor performance of our national team. PSL is more competent than SAFA," said Sizwe in Soccer Laduma’s Facebook comments section.
The PSL looks set to resume early August, although details have yet to be confirmed as to when and how, with Gauteng being touted as the most popular province to host the bio-bubble for the conclusion.
