There have been many suggestions from sports fans around the country that spectators should be allowed back to the stadiums.

It has been a while since we watched a live football match in South Africa due to coronavirus and the lockdown rules poised by the government.

The Covid-19 cases in South Africa have been decreasing steadily this month and more people are getting vaccinated.

The president has also announced in his latest speech that the nation will be placed on lockdown level 1 and this means that there are more economic activities that are allowed.

There were hopes as well that spectators will be allowed back to watch the PSL games but it seems like that is very far from happening.

The Premier Soccer League popularly known as PSL has released a statement and mentioned that the spectators will still be not allowed inside and outside the stadiums.

They mentioned that the disaster management act does not allow sports gatherings and this means that they will need to wait a little more.

The only disturbing thing about the whole statement is that there were hints from the news that vaccinated people will be allowed to watch the live game of Bafana Bafana and Ethiopia for free on the 12th of October.

There were also rumours that the president of SAFA will meet with the minister of health to discuss things further.

Another question that people might have is that the different political parties are allowed to host gatherings for their manifestos but spectators are not allowed to gather in stadiums.

The president has also announced himself that 2000 people are now allowed to gather in open spaces but football fans are not allowed to go and support their beloved teams, why?

The PSL will need to revise this and try to negotiate with the government officials as there is a need for football supporters to go and cheer up their teams.
