Sekhukhune United have been judged to be the winners of the 2020/21 GladAfrica Championship. This is after court arbitration ruled in their favour, which awarded them three points.
These points have taken them to 53 points and finish in first place.
“The Premier Soccer League (PSL) intervened in the proceedings and asked, by way of a counterclaim, for a declaratory order that the NSL Handbook is not silent, and that it deals fully with the way in which the NSL Disciplinary Committee and/or the SAFA Arbitration Tribunal must deal with misconduct matters in professional football in South Africa.” A statement from the PSL read.
“Judge Sutherland granted the declaratory order the League sought.
“Judge Sutherland also confirmed the two SAFA Arbitration Tribunal awards handed down by Advocates Epstein and Cassim SC which impacted the final log standings.
“These awards were challenged by Polokwane City and TS Sporting. Neither challenge was upheld.
“The consequence is that Sekhukhune United Football Club have secured automatic promotion to the DStv Premiership for next season, while Chippa United, Royal AM, and Richards Bay Football Clubs will context the promotion/relegation play offs which will commence on the 15th of June 2021.” The statement concluded.
Royal AM Headed To Promotion-Relegation Playoffs!
