We Have To Go Back To Our Ways

There's been a lot of cry recently from a lot of football fanatics about the postponement of games in the PSL. One will remember that, before the 1996/97 season, our league used to run like almost every other league in Africa. It used to start in January and end in early December. Most African leagues still run like this – we are the only league in Africa that runs from August to May.

That is costing our teams that participate in the continental competitions like the Champions league and the Confederations Cup. We even struggle to register our players on time for the continental competitions because by the time our transfer window opens, the CAF registrations are closed. It happened to Sundowns recently, when Sibusiso Vilakazi, Anele Ngcongca and Ricardo Nascimento couldn't participate in the club's Champions League triumph due to the fact that, when they were signed, registrations were already closed.

This has made some supporters think about going back to how we used to do things – get back to running from January to December. Some even went as far as saying that the reason it took South African teams 21 years to win their second CAF Champions League is because of this.

This is definitely something the PSL have to look at!
