Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Irvin Khoza has said that football’s global ruling body Fifa do not allow political parties and religious organisations to campaign at stadiums in the sport.
In the past fortnight the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and African National Congress (ANC) were visibly present at Orlando and Lucas Moripe Stadiums‚ in an Orlando Pirates vs Mamelodi Sundowns league game‚ and at a Sundowns vs Al Ahly Caf Champions League quarterfinal.
Khoza said though the the league cannot allow political parties the platform to advertise or campaign‚ the PSL also cannot stop fans arriving at stadiums wearing the colours of their parties.
