Football, rugby and cricket have been suspended in South Africa since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country

The SA government has since permitted 16 teams to start training immediately and resume the league in which the teams are left with between six and nine games to play

However, no clear date have been set for resumption, but the government hints that the league is supposed to end by July 31 and recommended by the FIFA
