Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League have been forced to alter the 2011/12 fixture list, two days before the new season even kicks-off.
Free State Stars were scheduled to begin the new campaign against
SuperSport United at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Saturday, but heavy
snow in Phuthaditjhaba has forced the tie to be moved to Goble Park in
The news comes as a big blow to Stars, who were set to move back
to Phuthaditjhaba following a two-year absence due to financial
constraints, but the home-coming champagne will have to be put on ice.
The decision was made early on Thursday after the PSL had ordered
a pitch inspection, although Dikwena are expected to return to the
Charles Mopeli Stadium when they host Black Leopards on August 24.
