PSL CEO, Brand de Villiers, has confirmed that the Absa Premiership trophy will be handed to the champions on the last weekend of the season - meaning likely winners, Kaizer Chiefs, will have to wait until Saturday, May 9 to lift the trophy.
Kaizer Chiefs, who need just three points to be crowned champions, have the chance to clinch the title as soon as Wednesday should they beat Polokwane City.
A win over Polokwane City on Wednesday would see the Amakhosi surge to an unassailable 63 log points, with second-placed Sundowns only able to reach 62 should the win their remaining matches.
The League also confirmed that the last two block fixtures of the season on Wednesday, May 6 and Saturday, May 9 will be played simultaneously.
Kick-off for Wednesday night fixtures will be 19:30 while Saturday’s fixtures will kick off at 15:00.
De Villiers commented: “The PSL, in consultation with our sponsors, Absa, have decided to hand over the trophy at the last fixture of the club that will emerge as champions of the Absa Premiership on May 9.
“This means that even if a club has mathematically won the Absa Premiership before Saturday, May 9, they will not be handed the trophy until their last match.”
The PSL further confirmed that it has prepared for all scenarios for the last weekend of the season should the championship race go to the last round of PSL fixtures.
