Kaizer Chiefs declared Q2 Absa Premiership winners

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs are the winners of the Absa Premiership Quarter Two.

Kaizer Chiefs, who are on 18 points after seven games, are now on top of the Q2 log table. Mathematically, they cannot be caught by any of the clubs behind them, despite the fact that some clubs have not played their full quota of games in Q2.

Bidvest Wits, who are second on the Q2 log table, have 13 points from six games (only one game in hand). Third-played Ajax Cape Town also have 13 points but they have played their full quota of matches. (see log attached) Quarter One is yet to be decided – with a number of clubs still having a chance of winning the R1.5 million prize.

Last season, Kaizer Chiefs won two Quarters (Quarters One and Three) and were also crowned as Absa Premiership champions. This means they banked R13 million from the total prize money (League championship and the two quarters).

PSL CEO, Brand de Villiers said: “We would like to congratulate Kaizer Chiefs for winning Quarter Two. We have seen them display some good performances lately and this is a timely reward for their efforts.”

The PSL CEO went further to explain the situation with Quarter One: “For every Quarter, fixtures are allocated at the beginning of the season as block fixtures and whenever there are changes, these fixtures remain in that block.

“People will remember that we had to reschedule a lot of fixtures earlier in the season mainly involving Orlando Pirates. This created a backlog and resulted in Quarter One fixtures being postponed to a later date. The fact that competition is tight at the top of the Q1 log also means that it could go to the last matches to be certain of a winner.”
