PSL, Wake Up And Change The Calendar

It is about time the Premier Soccer League puts up its hand and apologises for the decision to move from the African calendar to the European calendar…

Can you name one good thing that has come from the change of the calendar in South African football?

All I see is headaches. Headaches for smaller clubs who, at times, need to go without competitive football in the middle of the league season to accommodate African tournaments.

Tournaments like the CAF Champions League become more like a burden because it completely messes up domestic fixtures and forces you to play catch up – especially if you get far in the tournament.

For South African football to again become a continental superpower, we have to compete with Africa, and unfortunately with the calendar we are on, we are not on a level playing field.

If the PSL were hoping that most other African countries would make the switch, along with CAF, they must surely have now realised that this is not the case, and that a decision needs to be taken quickly to avoid an ongoing mess.

The league recently stopped for over a month due to the festive break and Chan – while English teams played through the Christmas period and January. On top of that, fixtures were changed left, right and centre – some postponed more than three times.

Enough is enough don’t you think?
