Should Chiefs Have Received Their Trophy Last Week?

Kaizer Chiefs have known that they are the 2014/15 Absa Premiership champions for two weeks now, and there has been huge debate regarding the handover of the PSL trophy. Why wait so long? 

The PSL announced that the trophy will be awarded to Stuart Baxter’s men after the last game of the season, which would see Chiefs lift the big-eared cup in P.E against Chippa United. 

First off, the excitement of being crowned champions would have somewhat subsided by the time Chiefs take on Chippa and finally lift the trophy.

The natural elation and excitement would have dissipated somewhat and celebrations, away from home, will be more forced compared to if it was handed to them straight after the Polokwane City match at the FNB Stadium - or the match against Mamelodi Sundowns just days later. 

The PSL is trying to copy European standards when it comes to trophy handovers, but why stick by European traditions for this, when they don’t bother taking note of them when it comes to cup games and venues for the final? 

Even if the trophy wasn’t handed to Chiefs after the Polokwane City match, it would have been equally as exciting if it was against Sundowns, given the rivalry and the dramatic fashion in which they won the game. 

In my opinion, Saturday’s trophy handover will not be as exciting as if it was done two weeks ago. What do you guys think?
