Minister of Sport, Arts & Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, has given the go- ahead for PSL clubs to return to training on 1 June, but official matches are still off the table for now.

The minister confirmed this on Saturday morning, with all contact and non-contact sport allowed to resume training when the country moves to level 3 of the nationwide lockdown.

The league has been suspended since March when Covid-19 began to spread across the country – with Kaizer Chiefs top of the log, closely followed by defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Teams can now return to the training ground and prepare for the resumption of competitive action, after spending the last two or so months keeping fit within the confinement of their own homes.

Players will thus return to training on Monday, but will have to do so under strict regulations and restrictions looking to safeguard players.

The PSL will be expected to communicate further next week, as teams still need to be made aware of all the strict protocols that will be set in place, including Covid-19 testing.
