“Are there any plans for a return to stadiums?”- PSL Fans

With COVID-19 rates on the rise again, disgruntled fans still feel that a return to stadiums is necessary, pointing out that England is days away from allowing attendance to sports events. Since lockdown was imposed back in March, supporters have been able to attend Premier Soccer League fixtures, but this hasn’t stopped some from watching matches from outside the stadium. The recent spike in cases isn’t going to help the situation, as it may force the league to continue without fans.

Supporters have suggested allowing limited seating, arguing that social distancing can still be achieved with fans attending matches. In the SL Podcast’s latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show, fans debate different ways in which the league can facilitate allowing fans to attend. Pirates fans also react to their side’s stalemate against Baroka FC.

"We are going to struggle to make Top 8"- Khosi Fans

Kaizer Chiefs suffered another disappointing loss, this time at the hands of Moroka Swallows in a 1-0 defeat on Tuesday evening.

Chiefs fans were left frustrated, with many unsure where the side will finish at the end of the season.

In the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show on the SL Podcast, Khosi supporters debate what the Soweto giant's mandate for the rest the league campaign should be. Many believe that Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt should target a top eight finish as the team is left in awkward position this season, as they won't be able to strengthen their squad until next season due to the side's FIFA transfer ban.

In the full podcast, PSL fans also give their thoughts on whether the league should consider pitch-side VAR monitors after match officials were criticised this past weekend
