27 July 2020 – The South African Football Association (SAFA) welcomes the decision by the National Soccer League (NSL) Board of Governors (BoG) to confirm dates for the conclusion of the 2019/2020 soccer season.

“I would like to thank the NSL chairman and the entire Board of Governors for helping put this matter to rest. We will now witness the ultimate and fair conclusion to the current and unique season, and I am sure the football-loving fans can’t wait for football to resume again,” said SAFA President, Dr Danny Jordaan.

The SAFA President said the Covid-19 pandemic had put football to a definitive test but is happy that most of those challenges are now behind us.

“The match officials are getting into peak fitness and come 8 August, it will be all systems go,” he concluded.
