Following a meeting this morning, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza has confirmed that the Telkom Knockout final scheduled for tomorrow night will go ahead as planned.
Dr Khoza also announced that the Absa Premiership fixtures will also go ahead tonight and on Sunday.
“All PSL and NFD matches will, between now and the day before the funeral be dedicated to our nation’s first democratic President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. On the day of his funeral, there will be no PSL nor NFD matches played,” Dr Khoza said.
“All the scheduled fixtures will remain the same. However, in an event of a scheduled match venue for an Absa Premiership fixture being used for an official memorial service, that fixture will be rescheduled,” the PSL Chairman added.
There will be a moment of silence in honour of Madiba at all PSL matches from tonight until the funeral. The PSL has asked all the clubs to wear a black arm-band.
