Mamelodi Sundowns vs Stellenbosch match to go ahead as planned

Mamelodi Sundowns will face Stellenbosch FC three days before the Telkom Knockout Cup final which is scheduled for December 14 in Durban.

Contrasting media reports recently claimed Sundowns had requested for the fixture to be postponed in order to afford them time to prepare for the final.

Pitso Mosimane also went public saying he was confident the PSL would reschedule their match against Stellenbosch, arguing it would be the first time a team would play a league match three days before any Cup final in the PSL era.

The PSL, however, has decided to accommodate Sundowns by only moving the fixture from Cape Town Stadium to Loftus Versveld Stadium after initially considering postponing the match.
