FOOTBALL fans have expressed mixed feelings over the postponement of the much-awaited Premier Soccer League Cup Competition to the 22nd of this month.
Football stakeholders will have to wait a little bit longer to witness the return of the beautiful game after the Premier Soccer League (PSL) moved the resumption date by a week.
The development, which according to the PSL is meant to pave way for the finalisation of negotiations with sponsors, has been received with mixed feelings by football fans.
I think what the PSL has done is in good taste, appreciation and respect of players, officials and administrators. Football has been on the ice and these teams or players need to play for something hence the need to have a sponsor since the games will be played behind closed doors,
The whole issue here is about money, PSL coffers are dry and they cannot afford to run this competition without money. We can’t blame them (PSL) because their monies come from gate takings so with the coming in of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a huge blow.
It has been long without football, PSL should have engaged corporates a long time ago and ensure they secure a sponsor before even announcing the dates for resumption.
The PSL is not organised, these guys are not considerate at all, players, administrators and officials survive on football yet they are not making any serious strides to allow for the smooth return of the game. It is very sad and we call them to order, said some fans.
The Cup Competition was initially scheduled to kick off on Saturday this week but is now set for the 22nd of this month.
