Majavu Shares Important Ruling One Day Ahead Of PSL Playoffs

PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu has confirmed that the Johannesburg High Court has dismissed an urgent application to interdict the PSL relegation/promotion playoffs.

Upington City Football Club had taken the matter to the High Court after the PSL DC ruled against their matter, involving Milford FC, which they then also took to SAFA arbitration.

Upington had alleged that Milford had failed to field the minimum amount of U23 players in their Motsepe Foundation Championship clash in April.

Bafana Ba Gucci lost the game 3-0 and had the PSL DC ruled in their favour, they would’ve overtaken Baroka on the log and qualified for the playoffs, based on the better goal difference.

However, after the case was already dismissed by the PSL DC and SAFA arbitraion, the High Court also dismissed Upington’s case.

“A further DC and related matters update,” Majavu stated.

“I can confirm that a short while ago the high court in Johannesburg dismissed an urgent application to interdict the playoffs, scheduled to commence tomorrow [Sunday].

“Such application was brought by Upington Football Club, having lost an arbitration yesterday evening.

“According to Upington they wanted the playoffs to be interdicted pending a review of their challenge against the arbitration awards in terms of their challenge was dismissed.

“I can now confirm that the playoffs will continue without a glitch after their application was dismissed with costs. There will be no further commentary on the matter. The Upington chapter has now been closed.”
