Sukazi Takes Major Step In PSL Ambitions

TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi has made inroads in his quest to purchase the top flight status of a PSL club, the Siya crew has learnt.

In June, Sukazi, the owner and chairman of the GladAfrica Championship club, had his interest in Bloemfontein Celt­ic’s top-flight status rebuffed after the club received financial backing from Bloemfontein-born business­man Lebogang Mokoena.

However, that did not deter Su­kazi from his desire to own a status in SA football's top tier. Following the rebuff, the Siya crew had been informed that Sukazi and Highlands had opened talks. At the time, the club de­nied that their Absa Premiership status was actively for sale, but the club’s co-director, Brad Kaftel, informed the Siya crew that they would be open to selling if the right offer came along.

Siya sources subsequently in­formed the crew that Highlands Park placed a price tag of around R55 million for the club’s PSL fran­chise, with the Tembisa-based outfit since confirming that they have re­ceived a mega offer, although they did not disclose the figure. 

The latest news reaching the crew, is that Sukazi and Highlands Park have agreed to a deal in principle for the sale of the club, pending the fi­nancial securities. This despite both parties having denied talks in the past.

Indications are that should the fi­nancial security be guaranteed, the proposal will be brought to the PSL, who will need to ratify the deal. It is believed that the club could be re­located to Mpumalanga, should the sale be completed.
