No spectators, media and scouts are going to be allowed at the ABC Motsepe League national play-offs in Nelspruit.
The nine-team play-offs are going to begin on Monday, 28 June and end on Saturday, 3 July.
“Due to COVID-19 regulations enforced by the national government, we will play the ABC Motsepe League national play-offs behind closed doors and have 100 people maximum at the stadium. We, therefore, can only accommodate the two clubs playing at the time, the medics and local organising committee which includes SAFA media,” Teboho Motlanthe, chief executive officer of the South African Football Association (SAFA), said.
“We are aware that the national play-offs always evoke national interest, especially from scouts around the country but this time we are in the middle of a devastating pandemic and we need to put the health of the people first ahead of any other thing.”
The nine provincial winners have been grouped into three groups of three teams each. The two best teams are going to be promoted to the GladAfrica Championship.
