Irvin Khoza explains why PSL fans can’t return
The government previously established that sports organizations may host a maximum of 2,000 spectators per venue, but the finding of the Omicron variety at the end of last year seemed to complicate matters, as Khoza revealed this week.
As a consequence of the fourth wave of Covid-19 in South Africa, sports teams have continued to prioritize rigorous “bubble” surroundings, with the Proteas-India cricket series being one example.
Khoza indicated during a news conference on Wednesday that DStv Premiership supporters will continue to wait for a comeback.
“The regulations say we must have 2,000 spectators. Unfortunately, we have got constraints as a league. We have got responsibilities towards our partners; the sponsors, suppliers and everybody [else]. Amongst them, the tickets which must go to them are plus/minus 2,000 to 3,000 tickets. What remains for the supporters?” Khoza told journalists on Wednesday.
“That is why the executive committee, with the concurrence of the clubs, have said it is better to manage it [the prevailing situation] at the level of [a bio-bubble], until such a time that they allow us full access of supporters into the stadium.”
