Breaking: AmaZulu Docked Six Points, New Look Table Revealed

AmaZulu have been docked six points and the team has now moved from position 10 to the bottom of the log. 

AmaZulu were found guilty by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for failing to comply with a ruling from CAS in September 2017.

The matter emanated from a dispute between the Durban-based club and Namibian player Phinheas Nambandi.

Nambandi had taken Usuthu to FIFA in 2014 through the help of the South African Football Players Union after the Durban club terminated his contract with three more years still to run.

The PSL has issued a statement confirming the latest developments. 

PSL Statement on AmaZulu FC FIFA Ruling

The Premier Soccer League Executive Committee yesterday, 27 September 2018 met AmaZulu FC to discuss the implications of the ruling from the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee handed down a decision on 10 August 2018.  The FIFA DC ruled:

Ordered AmaZulu to pay a fine of CHF 10,000.  That sum was to be paid within 30 days of notification of the decision to a named FIFA account.

Granted AmaZulu a final deadline of 30 days to as from notification (i.e. as from 16 August 2018) to make payment of the sum contemplated in a CAS award referred to in the decision and proof of payment was to be provided to the South African Football Association;

Ordered that if payment was not made in accordance with (2. Above) then six (6) points would automatically be deducted without any further formal decision;

Indicated that if after the deduction of these points, payment was still not made, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee would decide, upon the request of the Creditor, on a possible relegation of AmaZulu’s first team to the next lower division.

The PSL Executive Committee communicated the automatic points deduction (6 points) from AmaZulu FC.

Consequently, the League has compiled a revised Absa Premiership log standings. AmaZulu now have one (1) point.
