Sports Minister Tokozile Xasa has lauded the resumption of Premier Soccer League matches on SABC radio stations.
On Monday, Ministers of Communications and Sports, the PSL and the SABC held a meeting to resolve the impasse which led to the non-broadcast of PSL matches when the new season started over the weekend.
On Friday, the SABC announced that it would not be broadcasting the matches on its radio platforms due to unsuccessful negotiations with the PSL.
Xasa says the interest of South Africans should always come first.
“It’s good news for South Africans because the meeting came to the conclusion that we are back to the system where radio will be able to broadcast, so South Africans will be listening to all their league matches. The issue that was also a bone of contention around promos also, it’s all systems go.”
