Premier Soccer League acting chief executive Mato Madlala has confirmed that clubs will continue receiving grants in order to pay their players.

Domestic football, along with most other aspects of life in South Africa, has been put on hold as the country observes a lockdown period until 16 April in an effort to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.

Despite the lack of football, Madlala has assured PSL players that they will continue getting paid by their clubs as the monthly grant of R2.5 million will keep coming.

"Clubs will continue receiving their grants from the PSL. Even if the season runs until June it will not be a problem because clubs receive the grant every month throughout the year," Madlala told Sowetan.

Black Leopards owner David Thidiela added, "The players will not be affected by this, they will continue getting their money. The whole country is under lockdown and we will take care of our people."
