Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has welcomed the news that South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) will resume next month.
The 2019-20 PSL season has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but league boss Irvin Khoza announced on Monday that the campaign will restart on 8 August with the Nedbank Cup semifinals, which will soon be followed by Absa Premiership fixtures.
“I think we are all very excited to hear that we will be returning to the playing field and I think under the circumstances with the many uncertainties in the whole world at the moment, to know that you have a date to resume football and the current season to its completion,” Comitis is quoted by Soccer Laduma.
“I think it is obviously on a sporting basis the most fairest way to complete the decision on promotion and relegation and I am glad that the PSL, the Board of Governors and the chairman has made this decision in unison.
“So we look forward to the return, and our team Cape Town City, we are ready, we have been prepared for this so it is a long time coming and we are very grateful.”
City were placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log at the time the league was suspended, just four points above the relegation zone but with a game in hand on all of the teams placed below them.
