The South African can exclusively reveal that there are plans for fans to watch Saturday’s Soweto Derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
However, at this stage, the stakeholders, including the PSL, are yet to decide on how many spectators will be allowed into the venue.
A source privy to the situation who asked to remain anonymous told The South African that a team has been put together to draft the said plan.
“There is a plan in place for fans to watch the Soweto Derby on Saturday,” the source told this publication.
“A task team was put together to draw the plan, and submit it to the PSL and SAFA. And if it gets approved then this year’s Soweto Derby will have fans,” added the source.
This past weekend, the PSL gave the green light for 2000 people to watch the MTN8 final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
And this was only the second time that South African football fans were allowed back to the stadiums since Covid-19 hit the world.
The first time was when Bafana Bafana hosted Ethiopia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at FNB Stadium in October.
