The Kwamahlobo Games Committee together with its partners and sponsors have decided to postpone the 2020/21 edition of the Kasi Festive Diski tournament held in Soweto, Meadowlands.
The Kwamahlobo Festive Games 2020/21 event was planned for 23 December 2020 – 5 January 2021.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the tournament’s organising committee said they have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic in the hope that they would be able to safely host the annual Kwamahlobo Festive Games.
“Based on President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address on 3 December 2020, the Kwamahlobo Games Committee together with its partners and Sponsors decided to cancel this season’s Kwamahlobo Festive Games 2020/1 event,” reads the statement.
“As difficult as this decision is, bearing in mind the rich history of the tournament and the number of employment opportunities it creates for local business, the safety of players, staff, fans and all stakeholders is of utmost importance.
“We, therefore, encourage people to stay safe, wear masks and practise good hygiene while avoiding crowded places.
“We are however excited to announce that we are working tirelessly on launching a revamped KwaMahlobo Pre-Season Games which could possibly kick off early next year.
“Plans of staging the annual KwaMahlobo Easter Games are also still very much in place while we monitor the current Covid-19 situation.”
