The South African Premier Soccer League has confirmed a date shift for the upcoming January transfer window.
The decision came after the champions Mamelodi Sundowns requested the PSL to extend the existing window period in favour of linking with the CAF bracket.
The transfer window was initially 1 February to 1 March, but has now been changed to 18 January 2021 until 15 February 2021.
“The second transfer window of the 2020/21 domestic season will now commence on 18 January 2021 until 15 February 2021.
“Initially, the second registration period (transfer window) was scheduled for 01 February 2021 until 01 March 2021.
“The amendment was necessitated by the need to accommodate Member Clubs that have qualified to participate in the CAF Interclub Competitions and further to provide all Member Clubs and players with a degree of flexibility in the transfer market by enabling them to participate in the universal January window period,” ended the note.
Sundowns are competing in the CAF Champions League, while Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic are flying the SA flag in the CAF Confederation Cup.
