PSL could resume with teams confined to Olympics-style camp

Safa's chief medical officer Dr Thulani Ngwenya says the PSL can resume by confining teams to one big camp, similar to the athletes' village at the Olympics.

Following a meeting between the Joint Liaison Committee (JLC) of Safa and their special member the National Soccer League (NSL), Ngwenya confirmed that the decision has been made to create a safe, controlled environment amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Yes, that [the decision of hosting a national camp] is what we've agreed to," Ngwenya said as quoted by IOL.

"Everyone who goes into the biological safe environment cannot leave. So it's going to be like your Olympic Games-style [athletes village] where everyone is kept in one place.

"The teams will train and play at the allocated venues, and they'll then return to the biological environment.

"We'll be doing the daily screening. That's basically the protocol [that the task team has come up with]. But these will not only apply to the players, but to the residences at the camp as well.

"In terms of training, we've agreed that if the letter is sent today and is approved by the government, then teams can start training. But they'll have to be screened and tested for underlying conditions first before they can start training wherever they are."
