Machaka: Play-offs Are A Waste Of Time!

The promotion play-offs have been a talking point season after season, and many supporters continue to question why there is no automatic relegation and promotion between the Premier Soccer League and National First Division in South Africa, as is done in most other countries in the world.

Kaizer Chiefs supporter Machaka Masilo spoke to us boldly about his take on the system that has been in existence for many years.

"I wish I knew what went through the minds of the people who came up with this ridiculous idea!" he said.

"It really is unfair that the second team in the NFD has to play in the play-offs because they have been doing well throughout the season, and then there is a possibility that they will not be promoted."

This season, the play-offs are between Shaun Bartlett's University of Pretoria, and the NFD's Highlands Park, who finished in second place on the log, and Mbombela United.

"Tuks don't deserve to be in the PSL as they ended the season in 15th position, and now Highlands Park have to fight another battle just to make it to the top flight," Machaka continued.

"There needs to be a change made soon!

"The two last teams in the PSL should get automatically relegated and the two top teams in the NFD, deservedly, should be promoted.

"I don't see what the problem is with that logic."

Do you think the promotion play-off system is fair?
