Following consultation with the police and the two clubs, and in light of the student unrest at the Wits University campus, the Premier Soccer League has taken a decision to call off tonight’s scheduled Absa Premiership fixture between Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates.
The match was scheduled for a 20h15 kick-off at the Bidvest Stadium.
PSL acting Chief Executive Mato Madlala said: “We have been constantly monitoring the situation at the Wits University campus because of the student activism there. In the last few days, we held several discussions with the home club and security clusters involved in the situation. Following consultation with the police today, we have therefore taken a decision to call off the game for safety and security concerns.”
The PSL will advise members of the public on the future date for this fixture.
Information regarding the tickets that have been issued for the postponed match will be communicated in due course.
