PSL

Court of Arbitration In The Country

Officials from the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) are currently in Johannesburg to hear oral evidence from Thanda Royal Zulu, the PSL, Safa and a few other clubs regarding last season’s controversial strike-ridden National First Division campaign, which saw the top three outfits ending on a different number of games played.

The Siya crew revealed early in December that the CAS would be in the country early January 2014 to hear from the two National First Division clubs, who are both hoping to gain significantly from the outcome.

Amabhubhesi’s owner Pierre Delvaux told Soccer-Laduma that while he awaits the verdict over the coming two to three weeks, there’s a sense of satisfaction within himself.

“I’m satisfied that as an NFD club I’ve exercised my right to take this matter to the highest level in the world,” he said. “I feel I’ve done all I can do to defend my club and also in terms of what happened in the NFD. All that Thanda wanted was an opportunity to place this matter comprehensively before the CAS. That has now been done and we await the verdict which is final and binding.

“Yesterday (Monday) was purely about oral arguments. Norman Arendse represented Thanda and senior council Jeremy Gauntlett represented the PSL. Everyone was given the opportunity to give counter arguments. It was dealt with thoroughly.”

While twenty-eight people sat around a table cluttered with thousands and thousands of documents, it’s only a matter of time before clubs know their fate.

“Chippa United, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Polokwane City were also cited, all three filed written and oral arguments. Whether there’ll be winners or losers, or all winners or all losers I don’t know,” he concluded.
