Communications Minister Nomvula Mokonyane says the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) will resume its radio coverage of soccer matches on Tuesday.

Her statement comes after the public broadcaster and the Premier Soccer League (PSL) reached an agreement on airing the matches.

Millions of fans were disappointed when they could not follow Saturday’s opening match of the new PSL season, between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, on radio.

“We will find one another and make sure that we act in the best interest of the public with ensuring that there is mutual respect and cooperation on issues that are related to contract management. We thank you for your tolerance and it is all systems go with effect from tomorrow (Tuesday),” says Mokonyane.
