Judge Raylene Keightley reserves judgement in Ajax Cape Town's High Court application

Posted: 16 May 2018 Time: 16:30

Judgement in the Ajax Cape Town and Tendai Ndoro court application has been reserved for a later date, likely to be Friday.

The Urban Warriors turned to the courts to try and stop the promotion/relegation play-offs from kicking off on Wednesday after it was announced that they had been docked points for fielding the ineligible Tendai Ndoro and were therefore relegated from topflight football.

While they were in the South Gauteng High Court today, the opening match of the play-offs between Black Leopards and Platinum Stars kicked off at Thohoyandou Stadium at 15h00.

Judge Raylene Keightley reserved judgement before the next match between Jomo Cosmos and Black Leopards, and an urgent review of the judgment handed down by the South African Football Association (Safa) arbitration has been set for a later date, yet to be confirmed. 

If the play-offs do get postponed, they must commence and be done before the FIFA World Cup in Russia starts on June 14, as the football governing body does not want any football to be played during the showpiece. Should a decision not be reached by then, the play-offs would have to kick off after the World Cup in July.
