Breaking: Swallows Are Back!

The Siya crew can reveal that Moroka Swallows will make a comeback to the Premier Soccer League after an R8-million deal was concluded. 

Following months of speculation over whether the Dube Birds, who were relegated to the National First Division four years ago and then subsequently to the ABC Motsepe League, insiders have told the Siya crew that the Soweto club has bought the status of Maccabi FC and will be returning to the second tier immediately.

PSL chairman Irvin Khoza is expected to make the announcement this morning shortly after the board of governors meeting in Johannesburg. 

It is unclear at the moment if Maccabi will in turn drop down to the ABC Motsepe League – which is South Africa’s third tier.

Many will know that since their relegation from the top-flight four years ago, attempts have been made by several high profile administrators to get Swallows back in the PSL. With Gauteng MEC for Education, Panyaza Lesufi, at the forefront and acting as mediator for a wealthy consortium, the Dube Birds came close to buying Free State Stars, but the deal fell through on the eleventh hour.

But now the Siya crew can confirm that the deal has been done and Swallows are back!
