With the 2019/20 campaign set to return to action over the weekend, the Premier Soccer League has confirmed the dates of the new transfer window as well as the start date of the 2020/21 season.
The League’s chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza has announced that the 2019/20 season will resume on October the 8th and they have now decided that the transfer window to accompany the new season will open on September 22 and will run for just three and a half weeks until October 17.
The new developments are all as a result of the coronavirus pandemic which halted football activities for four months alongside strict lockdown conditions.
Although it has been reported that the 2019/20 season will be completed in a Biologically Safe Environment, Khoza could not confirm this until issued directives by the government.
“The bubble is an expensive thing to have, that’s why we said that the application of the BSE is going to assist us as to whether it will be a template for the future or not,” said Khoza during his media as quoted by KickOff.Com.
“For now we can’t say anything because we don’t know what the government is figuring out in terms of the [lockdown] levels or the sensitivity and severity of the pandemic.
“We will wait and see at that particular time [October] and come up with a strategy to mitigate whatever has been presented to us, for us to go forward and continue with the games.”
