The water crisis in the Western Cape has impacted negatively on the stadiums used by the Premier Soccer League clubs.

The league has had to close down a total of 13 venues as they do not meet the minimum requirements of the PSL.

In addition to the water problem, certain venues are being renovated and altered and are therefore not available to the League.

The Cape Town stadium has been booked for rugby, concerts and various other activities. As a result, Athlone stadium has been used this season by all five teams in Cape Town and this overuse has resulted in the grass dying.

As from Friday, the Athlone stadium will be closed to allow for the treatment and recovery of the pitch and installation of supply pipes.

The League says it is doing everything possible to assist them in these difficult times and is also negotiating with the City of Cape Town regarding the upgrading of other venues.

The updated fixtures with new venues will be sporadically communicated on the PSL website and social media platforms.
