“The Premier Soccer League (PSL) is awaiting the match commissioner’s report which will be referred to the league’s prosecutor.”

“The League wishes to apologise to our broadcast partner, SuperSport (who have agreed to broadcast the match), our sponsor DStv and football fans for this unfortunate incident.”

“The DStv Premiership fixture between AmaZulu FC and Cape Town City, which was scheduled for Saturday, 06 November 2021 will now be played on Sunday, 07 November 2021 (same venue and kick-off time), while the fixture details for the Marumo Gallants and Mamelodi Sundowns match on Sunday, 07 November 2021 will remain the same,” concluded the League statement.
