Judgement Reserved In Ajax High Court Application

Judgement has been reserved in the Ajax Cape Town high court application to interdict the PSL promotion/ relegation play-offs.

Mzansi’s football fraternity was shocked yesterday, on May 15, when the South African Football Association (SAFA) announced that Ajax had been found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro, and the outcome meant that the Urban Warriors had been relegated.

“Ajax Cape Town found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro and forfeit matches against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City & Supersport United. They lose all three matches 3-0 & fined R50 000 on each offence,” SAFA stated on their official Twitter account at the time.

The ramifications mean that Platinum Stars now feature in the PSL Promotional Play-offs with Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos, while Ajax are relegated to the NFD. 

Ajax then made it public that they will be heading to High Court in Johannesburg. Ajax stated on their official Twitter account, “Ajax Cape Town are currently consulting with their legal team regarding William Mokhari SC's arbitration ruling released this morning. 

“The club is in the process of preparing papers to be filed urgently before the High Court in Johannesburg for the matter to be heard tomorrow morning at 10 am.

“Amongst other issues, the club will seek to interdict the promotion play-offs from commencing on Wednesday 16th May at 3 pm. This will be sought pending an urgent review of the arbitrator's award this morning.”

Court proceedings were underway today, where numerous clubs presented arguments to the court. 

Judge Raylene Keightley reserved judgement and an urgent review has been set for a later date.
