PSL Return For Ambitious Club Chairmen?

PSL Could Be Set For More Club Sales

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 29, 2018 05:04 PM

A return to top-flight football could be on the cards for club chairmen, Mario and George Morfou.

As reported edition 1070 of Soccer Laduma, the Morfou brothers – the former owners of Mpumalanga Black Aces – are believed to be considering a return to Mzansi’s top-flight with another club of their own.

The last time they were in the elite league, the Morfou brothers were the owners of Aces before they sold their PSL franchise to John Comitis in 2016, which saw AmaZayoni renamed to Cape Town City and relocated to the Mother City.

For the time being, the Morfou brothers are the owners of Alexandra Black Aces, a team campaigning in the ABC Motsepe League. However, they are said to be seriously considering making a return to Mzansi’s top-flight, with an intention of buying a new PSL franchise or an NFD status, according to sources in the know.

Since selling their PSL status, the Morfou brothers have been linked with buying clubs in both the NFD and PSL. They were linked to Platinum Stars before the Siya crew broke the news that a Roger de Sa-led consortium from Cape Town bought the club’s PSL status.

Recent reports have also linked the Morfous with NFD side, Stellenbosch FC. Sources have since confirmed that the two brothers are on the lookout for a PSL or NFD status, though have not yet agreed to any deal.  

In confirming the sale of MP Black Aces in May of 2016, Mario and George assured the club’s fans that someday they would be back in top-flight football, after being with the team for over 14 years.

The rule must be, in any 5 years period after selling at that level, you are not allowed to buy at the same level. Meaning, if you sell NFD team, you can not buy NFD team in the next 5 yrs. You can buy PSL or lower than NFD. This will allow stability in ownership of teams.

@swalala : go to the museum and learn about Cosmos and how it is run. Jomo is a clever businessman. Jomo Cosmos as a club is sponsored by Jomo himself. The other finances from sponsors, winnings, gate takings and a monthly share from PSL goes direct to the club not to his (Jomo) business. Do not underestimate Cosmos.

You sell your PSL status only to seek to buy another one hardly two years later? You must be in some abracadabra kind of business!
