PSL, NFD part ways

Both leagues agreed to go their separate ways following a special board of governors meeting.

The PSL and the NFD has finally reached an agreement which will see the latter playing again.

JOHANNESBURG - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) on Thursday announced it has parted ways with the National First Division (NFD).

Both leagues agreed to go their separate ways following a special board of governors meeting two months ago.

The NFD subsequently boycotted matches because of a dispute with the PSL over several resolutions, including financial control.

PSL Communications Head Connie Mutsumi says the NFD will take to the field for its second round of fixtures next weekend as planned.

There were some issues that needed to be resolved and were quite happy that those were resolved amicably.

But in terms of the six member ad-hoc committee that was set up, they will now deliberate on the model of the standalone from a sustainability perspective.

Mutsumi says the NFD is in the process of running its own affairs.

It was agreed that they will handle their own travel, accommodation and meals for now. Its going to be a long process, but we hope itll take less than a year [to complete].
