Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League will use this weekend’s league and cup competition fixtures as a platform to continue spreading the anti-xenophobia message.
The African Union National Anthem together with the South African National Anthem will be played ahead of the Absa Premiership, National First Division and Nedbank Cup semi-final clashes this weekend. This is the first time that the African Union’s anthem is played at our fixtures.
The gesture is aimed at fostering the strong bonds shared by all the African countries and solidarity towards fellow Africans.
The club captains will also read an anti-xenophobia message ahead of kick-off at all the fixtures.
Yesterday, the PSL joined forces with the Laureus Foundation to spread a message of peace and fight Xenophobia.
The PSL and Laureus (@laureussport and @laureus_sa) calls upon the sporting community to stand together in this troubled time and to use your voices to say NO to xenophobia under the hashtag #SportAgainstXenophobia. @OfficialPSL and @laureussport
