Fans will be required to produce a vaccine certificate or a negative Covid-19 test not older than 72 hours, and proof of identification to be admitted.

On Monday, the PSL’s executive committee (exco) met to discuss the matter of allowing fans to return as spectators at matches after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that stadiums will be opened for professional sports events at 50% capacity.

Ever since Ramaphosa’s announcement, the PSL has been under pressure to open its doors at stadiums so that fans can enjoy the live action.

Khoza said all competitions under the auspices of the PSL will have to obey the regulations without any exceptions.
