The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has welcomed the decision by the South
Gauteng High Court on Tuesday to refer the application brought by Thanda
Royal Zulu to arbitration.
Thanda Royal Zulu have been disputing a ruling by the PSL in the South
Gauteng High Court in which all boycotted NFD matches at the beginning
of the season will not be replayed, with no points to be awarded for
those particular matches.
The court ruled in favour of Thanda, finding that the arbitration
process was unfair and that the PSL should seek an independent
arbitrator to run a new arbitrary process.
PSL Head of Legal, Advocate Ntsietso Mofokeng said: "We are delighted
with the outcome because we are convinced that this matter should never
have been referred to court in the first place. This is a football
Mofokeng further explained: "An Arbitrator(s) will be appointed to deal
with the issues raised by Thanda. On Tuesday, the Judge did not make any
findings on the merits of the award made at the arbitration process of
26 May 2013."
The PSL also advised that the Promotion Play-offs will continue as
scheduled this week. On Thursday, 20 June 2013, Santos will host MP
Black Aces at the Cape Town Stadium.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
