SAFPU In Switzerland To Discuss PSL’s DRC

The South African Football Players Union is continuing to push for changes in the Premier Soccer League and has now taken their fight to FIFA & CAS in Switzerland.
 
 
SAFPU have previously complained that the PSL’s Dispute Resolutions Chamber is not up to scratch, referring to it as ‘unjust’ and ‘flawed’ and the Siya crew reported back in January that they had contacted FIFA on the matter.
 
Now, with the 2016/17 Absa Premiership campaign at an end, SAFPU have confirmed that their general secretary is now in Switzerland to discuss the matter with both FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
 
Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, SAFPU’s GM, said, “I am currently in Switzerland to defend the players’ rights to a fair transparent process as envisaged by FIFA in its articles.
 
“I am appearing before CAS, the Court of Arbitration for Sport, to defend the position of the union. It has been confirmed by FIFA that the South African DRC is not compliant.
 
“I will also be talking about the rights of foreign-based players regarding article 22b of FIFA regulations on the status and transfer of players. This being Workers Month, it is important that we highlight the challenges faced by players on all fronts.
 
“As is the case right now, clubs will be changing hands, where is the players' involvement in all this? I know that this is part of the reason why there are those who are working 24/7 to remove this leadership from office and put a sweetheart kind of leadership. 
 
“I know that they are lying to players about all manner of things. We are not surprised by all this, and it is important to applaud all of those who are behind this project and continue exposing all the underhand tactics. For me, nothing is more important than knowing that players rights are respected. I know that we have ruffled a few feathers and to that end, those who feel hard done by are working very hard to reverse the gains we have made.”
 
Gaoshubelwe will return to South Africa on Thursday afternoon when he will report back to SAFPU and give them an update.
