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 matter."

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.
