Questions Surrounding The PSL’s Dispute With City

Questions Surrounding The PSL’s Dispute With Cape Town City

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 21, 2017 09:49 AM

There seem to be many questions surrounding the Premier Soccer League’s dispute with Cape Town City and their new sponsorship deal with SportPesa.

It was revealed last week on the Soccer Laduma website that the PSL and City are heading for arbitration after the two parties presented their cases to the board last week.

The PSL have indicated that City contravened the league’s resolution and are objecting to their sponsorship deal with a betting platform.

It is understood that sponsorship deals with betting platforms are solely reserved for the league and not individual clubs. 

A source close to Chairman John Comitis’ outfit has revealed that City are raising many questions about the league’s objection, with the club believing that they have not contravened any resolution.

The source added that City are not selling any betting rights to SportPesa, but are simply selling advertising space, in the same way that SuperSport United have done with Phumelela Gaming.

“It’s gotten to a point where it doesn’t make any logical sense. SportPesa are not a betting partner to Cape Town City, so there really shouldn’t be an issue here, in the same way that SuperSport United have done with advertising of Phumelela Gaming at their home matches. It’s yet to be determined what the real issue might be but it doesn’t seem to be as straightforward as it appears,” the source explained.  

“What difference could there be between SuperSport United advertising Phumelela Gaming and Cape Town City advertising SportPesa? SuperSport have done nothing wrong, and City have done the same,” the source added.
