PSL’s August 8 resumption excites Eagles goalie Akpeyi

first_imgNigeria and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, is excited that South Africa Premier Soccer League season will resume on 8 August with the Nedbank Cup semifinals. The Super Eagles goalkeeper and other players in the South African football series have been on recess due to world-wide lockdown. The decision to complete the 2019-20 season was voted for “unanimously” by clubs at a Board of Governors meeting. According to PSA chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza, the event will be followed by the league campaign three days later. The Nedbank Cup clashes will see Mamelodi Sundowns take on BidVest Wits, and Baroka FC tackle Bloemfontein Celtic inside the Gauteng bio-bubble at venues still to be determined. All matches will be played behind closed doors. The final of the Nedbank Cup will also be the end of the season, but will be followed by the promotion/relegation play-offs. Dr Khoza suggested the play-offs could finish in the “second or third week of September”, but the league campaign is scheduled to be completed on September 8, with some teams likely to play every three days.Advertisement Dr Khoza also confirmed that the fixtures in the league would be completed in the same order as before the lockdown. “The decision has been conveyed to our sponsors, Absa and Nedbank, while I have also phoned the president of SAFA [Dr Danny Jordaan]. “Gauteng will host the bio-bubble, including the transport of teams to hotels and stadiums. read also:Akpeyi not going to Europe–Agent This is an exciting development in a difficult time in our country.” Dr Khoza also confirmed that clubs who have failed to comply with the necessary measures to enter the bio-bubble will not be allowed in, and face the possibility of having to forfeit matches.——————————————————————————————– FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted ContentWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?The 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The World7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right Now7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyOnly The Chosen Ones Can Appear On-Screen Even After Their DeathA Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This DayIt’s Time To Show How Bad Some Women Can Really Be8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs10 Extremely Gorgeous Asian Actresseslast_img
