NFD Play-off draw completed

First Division Promotional Play-off draw held

Posted: 9 May 2011 Time: 2:20 pm

The draw for the First Division Promotional Play-offs has been conducted at the PSL offices.

Inland Stream champions Jomo Cosmos will travel to Port Elizabeth to face Bay United in the first leg of the two legged contest that will determine who replaces Mpumalanga Black Aces in the Premiership next season.

Cosmos will then host the return leg at their adopted new home Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa the following weekend, May 22.

The loser of the match between Cosmos and Bay will then face Thanda Royal Zulu – the Coastal Stream runners-up – in one of two semi-finals to determine the 16th team to play in the Premiership next season.

In the other semi-final the team that finishes 15th in the Premiership – either Vasco da Gama or Moroka Swallows – will then play the Inland Stream runners-up that is bound to be either University of Pretoria or Black Leopards.

The Inland Stream season has ended with AmaTuks in second place, but Leopards have appealed against the decision to dock them three points for using an improperly registered player.

In the event that Leopards win the appeal they will go above Tuks with 38 points compared to Tuks' 37.

Both semi-finals will be played on the same day, with the first leg on May 25 and the return on May 29.

The winners of the two semi-finals will then proceed to a two-legged final on June 11 and June 18.

I hate NFD Play-off.

My wish was for PSL promotion/relegation has always been:

1 - Number of PSL teams is increased from 16 to 18.
2 - PSL automatically relegates two teams in position 17 and 18, and promotes the both leaders NFL inland + Coastal streams (this would be Cosmos and and Bay United in this case).
3 - Two PSL teams in position 15 and 16 goes to play-off with the two runners-up in NFL stream.

This will make both PSL and NFL competitive.

For the following two reasons, I will not accept PSL excuse that 18 teams will cause a delay towards the end of the season

1 - SAFA has now cancelled a One-Day Telkom Charity Spectacular. Now there is more space for PSL matches.
2- Local soccer supporters were bored in the previous weeks waiting for about 10-days for the teams to play. The samething happens now to other teams not in Nedbank semis
3 - I would not mind if either Telkom cup is eliminated, under the condition that the prices for PSL winner and losers are doubled. Imagine if PSL winner gets R40m and runner-up gets R15m. Nedbank cup can remain since it is a platform for lower division teams and their players to showcase the talents.
