OFFICIAL: PSL Announce New Twist in Kaizer Chiefs Case

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced a new twist in Kaizer Chiefs case.

Amakhosi were charged by the league a week ago after the club failed to honour two games in December against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows.

Chiefs insisted that the club could not play the games due to Covid-19 cases at the club's village.

The league's new prosecutor Zola Majavu took in charge of the Chiefs case and charged the team for failing to honour two games.

The matter was scheduled to be decided on 21 January by the league's DC hearing.

However Majavu confirmed that the case has been postponed to another date after Chiefs brought application to arbitration at SAFA.

"We agreed that the matter should and can be postponed," said Majavu.

He added that they also agreed that timelines should be set so that the matter will not fall through the crack.

Majavu added that they also agreed that the matter must be finalized as soon as possible before the season is concluded.

Majavu also revealed the new date in which the matter will be discussed again.

He said the matter was postponed to 25 February time at 16:00.

Majavu also emphasized that the matter may not proceed in the current format, depending on the outcomes of arbitration.

He added that whatever the outcomes of the arbitration they should not prevent it.

Amakhosi are at a risk of being docked points by the league after failing to honour two games.

As things stand the club currently sits on fourth position in the DStv premiereship log table with 28 collected so far this season after the club has played a total of 16 games.

Amakhosi will return to action next month after the Africa Cup of Nations.

The club will start their year on the road as their first game of the year will be against Cape Town City away from home.
