Millions of fans have been requesting that stadiums in South Africa restore to capacity, and SAFA and the PSL have finally complied. The following Soweto Derby will it be sold out? Fans have been prohibited from purchasing tickets to their teams' major games for more than two years.
It has been over two years since Soccer City was filled with 90,000 Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates supporters. Is anything about to change, then?
Finally responding to Chiefs and Pirates fans is SAFA and the PSL.
The quick answer is both yes and no. We can definitely anticipate other athletic codes to follow suit after the Springboks announced that they will be permitting full capacity spectators for their three-match Test Series with Wales.
However, additional PSL locations will be opening more doors and adding more fans Before this can happen, a number of actions still need to be taken. PSL's CEO Matho Madlala provided the following update to the public:
This was recently revealed, and we'll be calling an executive meeting to evaluate all the consequences before writing to our members.
That is not what we did. We're going to meet and discuss the next steps with our sponsoring organizations, member clubs, and the general public. Madlala stated.
People have been urged to exercise caution and to have faith in SAFA and the PSL.
It is a great opportunity to recover the economy. However, we still need to exercise caution and assess our stadium safety procedures. We should evaluate those procedures right now. Added Ngwenya.
This is a huge chance for the sports economy to rebound and for the DStv Premiership to earn significantly more money.
We have returned to normal. According to Dr. Thulani Ngwenya, SAFA's chief medical officer, the sector has been seriously impacted by the pandemic and it is time to start the fight for recovery from an economic perspective.
The Soweto, Tshwane, and KZN derbies may soon host fervent crowds of supporters.
Let's hope this quickly changes so Arthur Zwane and MaMkhize can enjoy the excitement of sold-out games.
Keep an eye on The South African to learn when you can resume attending live games in full force.
