Should The PSL Executives Put Their Commissions Into Grassroots?

It was revealed earlier this month that the PSL executive committee members will be receiving R65 million in bonuses after extending their broadcasting rights with SuperSport United, but should that money go into development programmes?

The amounts break down as follows:

R58.5 million in broadcast commission

R3.6 million in radio commissions

R3.239 million in commissions for sponsorships

This then saw some of the profits shared among the executive committee members, such as chairperson Dr Irvin Khoza, former CEO Brand de Villiers (who resigned earlier this month), Mato Madlala (appointed the acting CEO this month), Kaizer Motaung, David Thidiela, Stanley Matthews, Mike Mokoena, Dan Simelane and John Comitis. 

It is only right that these members get rewarded for their heart work, but should they really be walking away with roughly R7 million, if distributed equally among them? 

South African football’s biggest problem is that lack of development at grassroots level, and this is largely due to the lack of infrastructure in place.

Financial backing helps create that infrastructure, therefore, begging the question if part of this money should have gone to a greater cause?

What do you think about the matter?
