PSL Respond On Playoffs
The Premier Soccer League has finally responded on the promotion/relegation playoffs which were scheduled to kick off at 15:00 this afternoon.
This latest news is after the High Court issued a ruling to suspend the playoffs on Monday, until Royal AM’s leave to appeal has been heard.
The PSL issued the following statement:
“The Executive Committee of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) today resolved to urgently seek leave to appeal against the order handed down by the Honourable Mr Acting Judge Nyathi of the Gauteng High Court on the evening of Monday 14 June 2021.”
“Acting Judge Nyathi interdicted the end of season promotion/relegation play-offs that were due to commence at 15h00 on 15 June 2021.
“The PSL has been compelled to seek urgent relief as the last day of the official season is the 30th of June 2021. Many player contracts terminate on that date and any further delay in completing the play-offs places the start of the 2021/22 season at risk.”
Royal AM’s application comes after Sekhukhune United were declared winners of the GladAfrica Championship on Saturday, following the court order to dismiss the challenges to the DC ruling that had awarded Sekhukhune three points.
