South African Football Association (Safa) president Dr Danny Jordaan has revealed they are set to hold a meeting with the Department of Health on the possibility of allowing fans back into stadiums.
The two parties are now set to hold a meeting on Friday, 8 October in Pretoria to determine the logistics for supporters returning to the stadium.
This will be the first time any team will play in front of spectators since an 18-month abstention due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Jordaan is all for having spectators back at the stadium after they have been absent for a long time.
“Bafana Bafana are the hearts and emotions of South African fans and my visit is to remind them of the place they hold within society, the hope they bring and the smiles they’re able to put on the faces of the fans,” Jordaan told Safa.
“As Safa, we have decided to do our best so that the team delivers their best. They’ll be chartered to Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, and leave immediately after the match back home, for them to focus on the job at hand.
“We had a great meeting with the Department of Health who will on Thursday guide the way in how we will achieve this, and do it in a manner that we all still remain safe. It will be a marvel to see fans back in the stands.”
