Media Statement on comments attributed to the PSL Chairman

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has noted incorrect quotes attributed to the PSL Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza in relation to the Nedbank Cup final venue by a number of publications today.

Yesterday, the PSL Chairman was quoted as saying: “The Executive Committee discussed the venue for the Nedbank Cup final but sponsor’s preferred venue in Bloemfontein was not available due to unforeseen reasons. It will therefore move to Moses Mabhida Stadium.”

The above quote is incorrect.

The correct quote from the Chairman (verbatim) is as follows: “The venue that was preferred by the sponsors for this final was Bloemfontein but unfortunately because of issues beyond our control we could not secure that venue. The final is now going to Moses Mabhida Stadium on the 18th of May.”

Soccer Laduma was made aware of the error and rectified it and apologised for any confusion that may have arisen. The League thanks Soccer Laduma for clearing up the matter.
