Johannesburg - Save the date: March 26 has been set down for the hearing of Tendai Ndoro’s eligibility case.

Senior Counsel Nazeer Cassim will arbitrate the case between the Premier Soccer League (PSL) and Ajax Cape Town, and his decision will be final and binding.

SA Football Association (Safa) legal officer Tebogo Motlanthe confirmed the date. He said they would have preferred it if the arbitration was held earlier, but Ajax’s legal representative Norman Arendse was not available until this date.

“Remember, our role is to put it on the roll and the two parties have to agree on a date,” said Motlanthe.

PSL legal representative Michael Murphy said it was frustrating, but there was nothing he could do.

“We had hoped it would be speedily dealt with, but, unfortunately, it is out of our hands,” said Murphy.

The PSL appealed a decision by its own dispute resolution chamber declaring the Zimbabwean striker eligible to play for Ajax.

At issue is a Fifa ruling that states that a player cannot turn out for more than two teams in a season.

Ndoro played one game as a substitute for Orlando Pirates in August‚ transferred to and played for Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia‚ then moved to Ajax. He has already played five league matches for Ajax so far.
