If there is one thing that the South African football fans have been longing for it's to return back to the stadiums just so that they can enjoy themselves and celebrate their favorites football teams as they face off against each other in the DStv Premiership. Since the coronavirus was made known to South Africa the Premier Soccer League football lovers have never enjoyed themselves to the fullest when it comes to viewing their clubs. Watching games from TV screens or any other gadget is totally different than when watching a match live at the stadium.
A couple of days back the South African Football Association (SAFA) gave Bafana Bafana a greenlight that their match against Ethiopia was to be played at a capacity of at least 2000 fans, but the unfortunate part is that it was only for those who are vaccinated. The developing news that have been shared to the media is that the Premier Soccer League and the South African Football Association had a meeting as they discussed the matters in relation to the return of fans to the stadiums as the 2021/2022 football season continues ahead.
The good news that the South African football universe will welcome is that the MTN 8 final between the league champions Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town city at Moses Mabhida Stadium will have fans allowed at the Stadium. In this match Sundowns has been received as the favorites to lift the MTN 8 trophy because of their current form and level of performance in the field of play, however undermining Cape Town City will be the biggest mistake of the Mamelodi Sundowns technical team.
The South African football universe is yet to know if fans will be allowed back at the stadium after the MTN 8 final or this will just be a once off thing that will be experienced by the South African football fans.
