The resumption of the league is still up in the air. Some of the opinions have ranged from declaring the season null and void, finishing the season behind closed doors, to calling the season off as it stands and crowning leaders Kaizer Chiefs as the Absa Premiership champions.
It will take a while before the South African domestic season resumes because the Premier Soccer League (PSL) is waiting for the government to relax the rules of the lockdown announced by SA President Cyril Ramaphosa.It’s been a month since domestic football came to a halt.

“There’s nothing new more than what we’ve been saying. We’ve noted what the president has been saying. There’s also an interaction between us and the government but there’s nothing more to it than that,” September said.But according to the PSL, they are still waiting on the government to give them the green light about resuming the league.“Since the forum met (earlier last month), they made their decision that they want the league to continue,” September said.
