Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League have revealed the new season will be
split up into four-quarters, with the league leaders at each stage set
to earn R1.5 million.
Speaking at a media briefing this weekend PSL chairperson Irvin
Khoza confirmed the quarterly prize money structure, and claims the new
lay-out will ensure an even more competitive campaign.
"The Absa Premiership will from this season be divided into four
quarters. Quarter one will have eight fixtures, quarter two seven,
quarter three eight and quarter four seven," Khoza said.
Orlando Pirates have now twice clinched the PSL crown on the
final day of the season, edging Ajax Cape Town on goal difference in the
2010/11 campaign before finishing just two points ahead of Moroka
Swallows last term.
The eventually winner of this season's PSL will also be rewarded
with a R10 million prize, making this term one of the most lucrative in
the country's history.
