Chiefs and Downs’ fixtures reshuffled to make way for CAF commitments

Menzi Magubane

To accommodate Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs’ CAF Champions League commitments, the PSL has reshuffled their fixtures for the weekend and next week.

Downs and Chiefs will travel to their different destinations on Friday as they are in action on Sunday in Champions League matches.

Masandawana travelled to Tanzania for their Group B match against CR Belouizdad of Algeria at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam at 3pm. The fixture was originally scheduled for 23 February but was cancelled due to medical restrictions in Algeria.

Downs were scheduled to take on Polokwane City in the Nedbank Cup last 16 on Saturday but the PSL has confirmed that this fixture has been rescheduled for Wednesday 10 March at Loftus Stadium in Tshwane at 3pm. 

Downs’ visit to Stellenbosch for the DStv Premiership fixture has also been postponed and the league is yet to confirm the new date.

This game was meant to take place on the coming Tuesday, just three days after Downs’ match in Tanzania. 


Amakhosi were in the same predicament as Sundowns as far as their next league fixture was concerned. Chiefs had a match away in Polokwane against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila next Tuesday but the league postponed it as well. 

On Friday morning Amakhosi will fly from Joburg on a special chartered flight for Burkina Faso where they have a date with Moroccan outfit Wydad Casablanca in Ouagadougou at 4 August Stadium at 6pm. 

This Group C clash was originally meant to have taken place on 13 February in Casablanca but it was postponed by CAF after the Moroccans did not issue Chiefs with visas.
