Prior to the match, the Soweto giants announced that there had been a mass Covid-19 outbreak which saw no fewer than 31 people test positive for the virus, meaning the club would not be able to host the fixture against the Citizens.
Cape Town City arrived at the venue as planned and remained present until the match was abandoned, with Chiefs expected to be handed a 3-0 defeat and a potential fine per the NSL Regulations.
Mara I support Chiefs decision on this 1,if they went and played the match they risked putting everybody's life at risk including cape town city. If you have about 31 people infected chances are that the players are contacts as well. So they would be blamed by everyone including the government.
Nkosana Mabuya people tend to be opinionated here and it seems they lack understanding of containment of covid-19 protocols, the regulations are gazetted for everyone to read. There is no wrong doing on the part of Kaizer Chiefs.
now as this stand in case of emergency Cape Town City is rewarded 3 points against amakhosi .
I wish this covid-19 can spread across all teams in pls , nd see what will happen then coz is not fair to amakhosi.
Thulani Msimang I always had a problem with this ruling. It was unfair to PLK City, it was unfair to Cape Umoya and it is unfair to Chiefs. PSL is able to postpone a match over lights and they even shift around games but they cannot do the same for the Pandemic.
What will happen in future in an event where teams that have to play each other have the same challenge? Who will be awarded the points and who will be fined?
