NFD Play-Offs To Be Delayed?

The 2012/13 Premier League Promotion/Relegation Play-offs, which are due to begin tomorrow (Wednesday) with a match between Chippa United and Santos, could be effected by a high-court interdict.

Thanda Royal Zulu chairman Pierre Delvaux, whose club finished in fourth place this season just a point behind Mpumalanga Black Aces, believes that the 2012/13 NFD season was flawed and wants justice to be served.

 

“The season was flawed,” he told Soccer-Laduma. “Go to the log add up wins, draws and losses, and herein is the travesty of justice. You can’t continue with the play-offs. All our documents will be appearing before a judge of the high court Tuesday or Wednesday morning.

 

“All we’re asking for is fair play. We are fully within our rights to follow the process, which is recognised by the constitution of PSL, Safa and falls within Fifa’s statute.”

 

The crux of the matter is that while NFD champions Polokwane City played all their 30 scheduled games, a strike meant that Amabhubhesi and Santos could only manage 27 and 28, respectively. 

 

“Thanda’s reasons for this need to be told, it’s not frivolous or obstructive because all NFD clubs should have an equal opportunity!” concluded Delvaux.
