Judge Roland Sutherland today, 12 June 2021, handed down an order dealing with the disputes that arose at the end of the GladAfrica Championship.

A copy of the order is attached.

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) intervened in the proceedings and asked, by way of a counterclaim, for a declaratory order that the NSL Handbook is not silent, and that it deals fully with the way in which the NSL Disciplinary Committee and/or the SAFA Arbitration Tribunal must deal with misconduct matters in professional football in South Africa.

Judge Sutherland granted the declaratory order the League sought.

Judge Sutherland also confirmed the two SAFA Arbitration Tribunal awards handed down by Advocates Epstein and Cassim SC which impacted the final log standings.

These awards were challenged by Polokwane City and TS Sporting. Neither challenge was upheld.

The consequence is that Sekhukhune United Football Club have secured automatic promotion to the DStv Premiership for next season, while Chippa United, Royal AM, and Richards Bay Football Clubs will context the promotion/relegation play offs which will commence on the 15th of June 2021.
