The Executive Committee of the PSL met this week (13th October) to discuss the recently amended Disaster Management Act Regulations.
The committee announced that until further notice the PSL Covid protocol will continue to limit attendance to 165 persons at a soccer match.
Per the published announcement:
The Executive Committee of the PSL met on Wednesday to deliberate on the amended Disaster Management Act Regulations of the 11th of October 2021 and identified matters that require stakeholder engagement and clarification.
These include engaging with SAFA regarding lessons learned from last night’s Bafana match against Ethiopia; vaccination messaging; SASREA compliance; ticket allocation; the issuing of tickets; access control; seating arrangements; media access; and the need to develop standard procedures to be applied.
Until further notice the PSL Covid protocol continues to limit attendance to 165 persons required at the match.
The Executive Committee has targeted the MTN8 Final, on the 30th of October 2021, as the ideal match to test the protocols that will be put in place.
The Executive Committee will meet again within the next seven to ten days to assess the outcome of the consultation process.
The PSL will communicate the approach that will be implemented after the meeting.
The PSL calls upon all supporters to support Government’s stance on the importance of vaccinations and the achievement of herd immunity. The sooner sufficient South Africans are vaccinated, the sooner supporters will be able to return in numbers.
The PSL wishes to express its appreciation to Government for making the return of supporters possible. The PSL also thanks supporters, sponsors, and the media, for their patience and understanding.
