    Please Correct me if i am wrong . Soccer is a winter sport and as far as i can remember must be played during that time . The problem i have is WHY is South Africa PSL being played over the spring summer period????

    The PSL is scheduled over this period to coincide with the major European leagues which is more suitable for the FIFA calender. This prevents having problems with player availability during a World Cup year and other junior tournaments.

    So basically you saying that SA soccer will NEVER reach its full potential , when the guys are Playing on hot sunny days , No wonder our PSL is being supported the way it is , as most of the people are watching Laliga, Serie A , Bundisliga & the English League . In all honesty your answer proves that SAFA nor FIFA cares about the well being and careers of players in the PSL

    I think the days of winter and summer sports are a thing of the past.

    Even the rugby season starts in Feb and ends in October (hell its one week from November) and it was only a few seasons back we had test macthes in May.
    I dont think our summer conditions are prohibitive. Sure they are hot but compared to some other African countries its probably pretty mild.

    Thanks for your thoughts Greenfan , its just the fact that S.A Soccer will NEVER reach the Potential of the European Leagues. Take Lucas Radebe as an example , He Captained LEEDS & reached his full potential playing a SOCCER in Winter

    Jake1WP is right, this sports just need to coincide event with the winter sports, but this does not meant a sport for that season alone. Many country with different four seasons occurring including tropical countries also have soccer events. So this sport is a sport of all times.
