The Premier Soccer League has revealed its delight in the Western Cape High Court's decision to dismiss an urgent application from Chippa United to stop the promotion/relegation play-offs.
It was revealed that the Chilli Boys had gone to court to interdict the play-offs but the league filed opposing papers. The judge overseeing the matter then dismissed the case this evening, and the play-off match between Santos and Mpumalanga Black Aces has continued as planned.
