Following the sitting on Wednesday morning, the arbitration between Kaizer Chiefs and the Premier Soccer League (PSL) has been postponed.
According to information obtained by The South African, the two sides — Chiefs and the PSL – agreed on March 15-16, 2022 as the date for the meeting.
As of now, it’s unknown why the game has been postponed, but the Chiefs and the PSL have reached an agreement.
And that arrangement was approved by arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC, who was nominated by the South African African Football Federation (SAFA).
The arbitration was agreed to by SAFA after the PSL had rejected Kaizer Chiefs’ request to have their December fixtures postponed.
Amakhosi failed to honour two of their five fixtures during that period due to Covid-19, and they face the possibility of forfeiting those six points.
And this is an attempt on their side to try and convince the South African football authorities not to take those six points away from them.
Should they forfeit the two matches, the six points will be awarded to both Cape Town City and Golden Arrows.
The PSL Disciplinary Committee (PSL DC) will surely be inconvenienced by the latest developments and could be forced to postpone their sitting.
The PSL DC, through prosecutor Zola Majavu, had set aside 25 February as the sitting date for the hearing on the same matter.
And the date was set to accommodate the arbitration and allow its processes to unfold before the league could take a final decision on the matter.
However, that sitting could be rescheduled for a date after the arbitration (15-16 March) – and that would leave the league with only two months to put the matter to rest.
