PSL Orders Amazulu and Marumo Gallants to Replay Aborted Match

The abandoned DStv Premiership match between Amazulu and Marumo Gallants will be replayed on Thursday, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) has confirmed.

The initial game was played on November 3, 2020, but was called off after 10 minutes when match officials raised concerns over the kit colors.

The visiting team was wearing similar trunks and socks to the home team which officials found difficult to distinguish. AmaZulu were donning their traditional dark green kit while Gallants put on their navy blue home kit.

Amazulu refused to accommodate their visitors and change into their alternative kit, which is white, but they were well within their rights as the home club.

PSL says the match will be replayed on Thursday and the league prosecutor is set to investigate what happened on Wednesday.

“The PSL is awaiting the match commissioner’s report which will be referred to the league’s prosecutor,” reads the PSL statement.

“The league wishes to apologise to our broadcast partner SuperSport [who have agreed to broadcast the match], our sponsor DStv and fans for this unfortunate incident.

“The DStv Premiership match between AmaZulu FC and Cape Town City, which was scheduled for Saturday 6 November 2021 will now be played on Sunday 7 November 2021 [same venue and kickoff time], while the fixture details for the Marumo Gallants and Mamelodi Sundowns match on Sunday 7 November 2021 will remain the same.”

Amazulu and Marumo Gallants came into the match  seeking redemption after losing the previous league matches a week ago.
