PSL Club Boss Addresses Sponsorship Drama On Opening Day

The PSL is counted among the best leagues in the world mainly because of the standard of football and the business side. This is a league that still has a long way to go in order to get the administration side right. We've seen many disputes happening over the years, however it didn't take long this season to see drama. This club boss has a tendency of speaking his mind and going against the leadership without holding back.

Cape Town City announced the deal with FNB as their latest sponsor. This sent shockwaves within the football community as it shows the improvement. This deal has the potential to push the standard in the league and encourage more brands to look at other teams. The big money is usually linked to the big three in Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

John Comitis sat down for an interview with Robert Marawa before kick off to speak on the issue surrounding the FNB deal and the PSL. He shared that he was told that the deal wasn't approved 4 hours prior to the game against Mamelodi Sundowns. He went on to share that he was told that they would have to take it off from their kits.

"I am disappointed with the procedures that PSL have to approve new sponsors,"

"4 hours before tonight's game I was told the PSL hasn't approved FNB as a sponsor and I need to remove them from the jersey"

John Comitis shared that they were able to get a court order to go ahead and put ad perimeter boards. They also went ahead with their FNB branded kits as we saw in the game against Mamelodi Sundowns.

"We've just been informed the court has ordered that we put up ad perimeter boards with FNB logo"

"And we are also going to play with jerseys with an FNB logo on them when facing Sundowns in tonight's PSL game"
