PSL Changes Rules - Big Blow For Agents!

The Premier Soccer League is making changes to the Dispute Resolution Chamber in relation to its “jurisdictions, powers and procedures”, this confirmed in a detailed document sent to member clubs by lawyer Michael Murphy.

While these amendments are aimed at improving the heavily criticised independent wing of the organisation, intermediaries, otherwise known was player agents, appear to be the hardest hit – they are no longer able to refer any of their disputes to the DRC.

Previously, agents were able to approach the DRC to resolve issues around monies owed, and breach of contracts to name a few of the matters that fell within its jurisdiction.

With that no longer the case, as per the amendments to the NSL handbook, particularly Article 23 of the constitution, agents will now have to decide whether to take any of their cases directly to court or just forfeit whatever dispute was in question.

This will probably hurt the players and the clubs in the long run, though the PSL could be taking this direction, which was approved by the Board of Governors on July 4 last year and given a stamp of approval by motherbody SAFA recently, to lighten the load on the DRC.

Over the years, there have been suggestions that the DRC is incredibly overwhelmed with several cases brought to their attention by the league, member clubs, players, member club officials and agents!

Clubs have been asked to familiarise themselves with the rule changes as they are effective immediately.
