Ajax Cape Town have updated the football fraternity on the latest happenings relating to their legal battles with the National Soccer League.
The Urban Warriors were present in court yesterday, following their desire to apply for an interdict against the start of the 2018/19 Premier Soccer League campaign.
However, the club subsequently withdrew their application, after Judge Denise Fischer granted the NSL leave to appeal her previous judgement.
Fischer recently ruled that Advocate William Mokhari’s award of docking points from Ajax for the ineligible fielding of Tendai Ndoro, be set aside.
The PSL was set to respond and have done so by requesting leave to appeal the judgement, with their appeal set to be heard in the coming days.
Upon this decision, Ajax withdrew both applications, one to interdict the start of the league and another for Section 18, which allows the order to remain, whilst it is being appealed.
However, the Urban Warriors along with their legal representative, Advocate Norman Arendse has since updated the football fraternity on the latest happenings.
At a press conference held at Ikamva, Ajax Cape Town CEO, Ari Efstathiou gave his opinion on the matter.
"I didn’t want to make a comment after yesterday because I thought it would be important to come to you with our thoughts.
