PSL play-offs given the green light


The Promotion/relegation play-offs will get underway this afternoon, the Premier Soccer League have confirmed.

The PSL have confirmed that Royal AM's application for leave to appeal was dismissed, meaning the play-offs can finally get underway.

As a result, Chippa United will host Richards Bay at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium today (15h00).

PSL statement:

Yesterday evening (18 June 2021), Judge Roland Sutherland handed down an order dismissing Royal AM Football Club's application for leave to appeal.

Royal AM brought an application for leave to appeal against the order handed down by Judge Sutherland on 12 June 2021, in terms of which Judge Sutherland denied its application for a review of the arbitration award handed down by Epstein SC.

Following the dismissal of Royal AM's application, there has been a final determination of the application before Judge Sutherland for leave to appeal.

We are advised that the order of Nyathi AJ of 14 June 2021 suspending the commencement of the playoffs "pending the final determination of Royal AM's application for leave to appeal and/or appeal no longer applies.

There is consequently nothing to prevent the commencement of the 2020/21 GladAfrica promotion/relegation playoffs.

The playoffs will therefore proceed with the first match being played this afternoon at 15h00 at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium between Chippa United Football Club and Richards Bay Football Club.
