THE Premier Soccer League (PSL) is now pushing for a September start for the 2020 season amidst the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic after top flight clubs were promised financial aid by the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa).
Those fears were heightened after the Confederation of African Football (Caf) Medical Committee drafted guidelines which must be followed for leagues on the continent to resume.
In total, clubs would have had to fork out more than US$10 000 a week just in order to meet the Caf Medical Committee recommendations. However, this was not going to be possible since most teams do not have the financial capacity to fund these health guidelines.
With Zifa also taking care of most of the overheads, the PSL is now looking forward to commencing their campaign in September.
