The Premier Soccer League (PSL) have confirmed that the GladAfrica Championship trophy handover will be delayed after the league was threatened and served with Court papers.
Royal AM finished top of the log after they played to a 1-1 draw with Cape Town All Stars, while Sekhukhune United finished second even after a 3-1 win over JDR Stars.
However, Sekhukhune have won an arbitration entitling them to three additional points which would make them champions. PSL is still considering the outcome of the arbitration that ruled that Sekhukhune should be awarded three points.
Full statement from PSL:
“The Premier Soccer League has been threatened and served with Court papers in relation to an arbitration award handed down impacting the GladAfrica Championship table.
The matter must clearly be ventilated one way or the other and resolved. The League responsibility is to properly consider the matter and take advice so as to ensure that all disputes and differences are finalized urgently and without delay.
While the matter remains in dispute, it is advisable to delay the GladAfrica Championship trophy handover for a short period to permit the League to consider the matter. The matches will continue and the results will be arrived at, and the issues resolved.
The League undertakes to resolve whatever issues there are as expeditiously as possible.”
