With professional football resuming in South Africa this weekend after the coronavirus forced break, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) has already made a decision on when next season will start.

PSL chairman Irvin Khoza announced that the 2020/2021 season will kick-off on October 9.

With the final matches of the current season to be played on the 5th of September, this means that teams will only have just more than a month to prepare for the next season.

“The registration window for the PSL has been agreed by the executive committee it will be on September 2 to the October 17 that is the first window.”

“The second window is going to be on the first of February 2021 to first march 2021. The start of the season is presumed to be October 9 the commencement of the new season of the Premier Soccer League. That is the message from the PSL.”

Earlier in July, the South African Football Association (Safa) gave football the go-ahead to resume on the first of August with the remaining matches to be played behind closed doors in Gauteng.

Khoza said individual clubs are expected to follow all strict conditions stipulated by their compliance officer.
