PSL officials say they will decide today whether to restart the richest league in the continent or cancel it amid the coronavirus pandemic. The league sponsors and broadcasters favour the 16-club championship resuming with all matches behind closed doors in Gauteng province, which includes Johannesburg. Absa, one of the five major banks in South Africa, are withdrawing as Premiership sponsors when the 2019/2020 season concludes. There are 54 outstanding league fixtures, with clubs having between six and nine fixtures to fulfil, and the Nedbank (FA) Cup has reached the semi-finals stage. Teams have been warned by league boss Irvin Khoza that they will lose their R2.5 million monthly grant unless football restarts.
