Johannesburg - The PSL is considering postponing the final of the Telkom Knockout cup competition, following the death of former president Nelson Mandela.

"I've spoken to the CEO of the Premier Soccer League [Brand de Villiers] this morning and he will speak to the chairman [of the PSL Irvin Khoza]," general manager of football Derek Blanckensee said on Friday.
