Sundowns vs Chippa game abandoned

Phakaaathi Reporter

The Mamelodi Sundowns versus Chippa United clash was abandoned due to power failure at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Tuesday night.

The floodlights went off in the 42nd minute and the referee stopped the match, with the teams still locked at 0-0.

After the technicians told the match commissioner that it would take about two hours to fix the problem, the Premier Soccer League announced the game had been abandoned.
