PSL agree to uphold suspension of league

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has said that the Absa Premiership will remain suspended in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The PSL board of governors upheld their decision made earlier in the week to suspend all football in the country and the call at a press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday.

PSL chairman DR Irvin Khoza confirmed that the organisation agreed that the season must come to an end by "no later than 30 June."

Khoza said: "The board of governors, which was led by all teams of the Premier Division and GladAfrica Championship, resolved that NSL values the lives of our stakeholders.

"We initially said that we will complete the season by no later than 30 June, but we shall remain flexible. We will take all possible measures in line with State President and national government.
