Play-offs to determine promotion to PSL

News

A special general meeting of League at the weekend, attended by all 32 teams in the PSL and NFD, adopted the amendments that were made to the Constitution with regards to the promotion and relegation of First Division clubs.

The changes mean that winners of the two streams will play against each other in a ‘final’ at the end of the season and the winner will be promoted to the PSL.

A statement released after the meeting did not specify whether the final will be a two-legged affair or a sudden death match.

The loser of the ‘final’ will play in a mini-tournament with play-offs against the two second second-placed teams in each stream and the 15th-placed team on the PSL log.

The winner of this mini-tournament will also be automatically promoted into the top flight. The third round draw format was also adopted by the meeting.

The special meeting also announced that the contract for the radio rights has been distributed to the clubs, it is up to the individual clubs to engage directly with their local radio stations going forward.
