Despite being one of the biggest African club league, the psl still lacks major technical support and equipment now available globally to help in getting accurate football records. There may be light at the end of a dark tunnel in South Africa as the idea of a video assistant referee is discussed by the country's top leaders. Since the start of the 2017/18 season in Europe's top leagues, questions have been raised about Mzansi's readiness for the VAR system.
Although some might say too much technology has made football less interesting, progress and change is constant and why can't the psl have a good VAR system?
There are a number of problems with implementation, on the one hand the fact that no PSL team owns their own stadium and on the other hand the enormous cost of implementing the technology. We've seen it implemented in the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup in the 2021/22 season, with restrictions - but according to SAFA President-elect Dr. Danny Jordan, maybe there is a more permanent solution to this.

Do you think the introduction of the VAR system is being delayed in the South Africa premier league football because of corruption and the issuance of brown envelopes or is this just a mere speculation? If the psl wants to be highly rated, then they will have to be improvements for the psl to be considered as one of the big boys.
