The Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has given the Premier Soccer League (PSL) permission to start the 2020/21 season after August 2020.
According to SAFA, FIFA has given them the mandate to amend the start of the PSL next season (2020/21) and this may require SAFA to amend the registration periods provided in the Transfer Management System (TMS).
Part of the letter from FIFA to SAFA reads: “As such, the association concerned should extend the end date of the ongoing season in the TMS, to reflect the match schedule. This may also require the association to amend the registration periods provided in the TMS.”
Tebogo Motlanthe, who is the South African Football Association (SAFA) Acting CEO, said he was happy with the clarification provided by FIFA.
“We are glad with the clarification we got from FIFA and we have already started preparation of the referees,” Motlanthe said on SAFA’s official website.
“They will arrive at the camp in batches and I want to assure everyone that the match officials will be ready, come 1 August 2020 when the PSL kicks off.”
