NFD At Loggerheads With PSL

With eight days to go before the sixteen National First Division clubs begin their 2014/15 campaign, there’s all sorts of drama behind the scenes, including allegations that the popular midday Saturday NFD Television Show is set to possibly bite the dust.
 
Furthermore, while NFD club owners and representatives from the various teams head to a special meeting in Johannesburg Thursday (today), with their PSL bigwigs, there are also disagreements concerning the number of U23 players in the second tier.
 
The PSL recently signed an agreement with broadcaster, MultiChoice which will see a new programme, the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, coming to the fore promoting a football competition for the PSL academy clubs. 
 
One NFD analyst, fearing for the future of his job, is waiting anxiously to hear what comes from the meeting.  
 
“At this moment I know the PSL are promoting the MultiChoice U19 in the place of our NFD show,” he told Soccer Laduma. “As soon as the PSL and NFD meeting is over, we’re waiting for SuperSport to brief us on what’s going to happen. 
 
“The analysts need to be addressed on the issue. We pray, hope and continue to be positive but you never know exactly what happens behind the scenes in those AGM meetings.”
 
Regarding the U23 rule, an NFD owner has revealed that Safa wants three youngsters on the field at all times (last season clubs had to start with five) which is one more than the league would be happy with.
 
“The NFD clubs have suggested just two U23s,” he said. “Obviously we’ll be discussing that together with our monthly grant as inflation is causing everything to going up. Clubs will gladly accept any increment and will be suggesting an increase.”
 
Soccer Laduma will keep you updated on the latest developments.
