Cape Town - The Southern Gauteng High Court has dismissed an urgent application by Ajax Cape Town to set aside a PSL arbitration ruling to ban striker Tendai Ndoro from playing for the club.

The decision effectively rules out the Zimbabwean attacker from playing for relegation-threatened Ajax for the foreseeable future until a final FIFA ruling.

The Urban Warriors presented an urgent application to the court to overturn a previous ruling made by Arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC that the 32-year-old not be eligible to play for the club.

Cassim in his ruling referred the matter to the world football governing body, FIFA arguing the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) does not have jurisdiction over the matter.

Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City had lodged a protest with the PSL arguing that Ajax Cape Town had contravened FIFA rules by fielding the player.

The player played for Pirates before signing for a Saudi Arabia side Al Faisaly before returning to the Absa Premiership to join Ajax.

FIFA rules prohibit a player to play for three different clubs in a single season.

In his ruling on Wednesday, March 28, Cassim referred the case to FIFA saying it was because the matter involved an overseas/international club.

Ajax face AmaZulu on Tuesday evening at the King Zwelithini Stadium in an Absa Premiership clash.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
