Arrows v Leopards date set

2012-02-28 12:22
Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) match abandoned in Umlazi on Saturday will be played at Princess Magogo Stadium, in Durban, next week.

"The Absa Premiership match between Golden Arrows and Black Leopards will now be played at Princess Magogo Stadium... on March 7," the PSL said in a statement on Tuesday.

Less than 10 minutes of the match had elapsed when tear gas swept across the King Zwelithini Stadium at the weekend.

The players from both teams ran off the field covering their faces with their jerseys.

At least three Leopards players were hospitalised and officials postponed the game.

The tear gas came from a violent protest by about 1 500 people at a hostel around 200m from the ground, which forced police to intervene.

After the air had cleared and officials gave the green light for the match to continue, Leopards management lodged a complaint that some of their players were unable to resume because they were unwell.
