On Friday, 3 February, the 2016/17 Premier Soccer League action graces our screens once again after a lengthy break due to AFCON 2017. The break, and a few more interruptions from Mamelodi Sundowns' CAF duties which postponed some PSL fixtures, has now caused matches to stretch as far as June.
The supporters have expressed their opinions and some concerns regarding the extension.
"Normally, the league ends in May, so it means players will get less rest in winter as pre-season needs to start in July. This is bad news!" – Mogriza
"After 17 June, there will be play-offs, and those teams involved in the play-offs will have less time to rest. Since South Africa is in Africa, the league should be played between February and November." – Up and down
With these changes being made for the catch-up matches, the Nedbank Cup final has also been rescheduled, to 24 June.
Do you think these changes will have a negative impact on PSL teams at a later stage?
