The PSL constituency will gather at its quadrennial general meeting next month to elect the new leadership.
PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza this week confirmed November 11 as the date the professional club structure will go to the polls to choose new leaders.
It is still not clear whether the 72-year-old administrator will stand for re-election.
Khoza, who is also the chairperson of Orlando Pirates, has been at the helm of the PSL for 18 years, and there have been no signs of electioneering by potential challengers for the top post.
The league’s constitution stipulates that, if one person is nominated uncontested, they are automatically elected.
Seven new executive committee members will also be chosen at the meeting next month.
The current executive committee members are David Thidiela (Black Leopards), Jose Ferreira (former Bidvest Wits CEO), Khumbulani Konco (Bloemfontein Celtic), Kaizer Motaung (Kaizer Chiefs), Mato Madlala (Golden Arrows), Rejoice Simelane (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Stanley Matthews (SuperSport United).
Nominations by the member clubs must be done with the league’s auditors, PwC, 14 days before the scheduled quadrennial meeting.
Interestingly, the PSL does not have a permanent CEO and Madlala has been acting since 2015, which was when Matthews vacated the role.
This is not an elected position and Khoza has previously said that the clubs wanted Madlala to continue.
However, he said that, to become a permanent CEO, club officials must relinquish their positions because they cannot have it both ways.
According the National Soccer League handbook, the 16 Premiership clubs are entitled to 10 votes each, while the 16 second-tier sides have two each in terms of voting powers.
The executive committee members have one vote each. However, in the election of the executive committee they will not vote, according to the constitution.
Efforts to reach Khoza on Saturday failed, despite numerous attempts by City Press to reach him through voice calls and text messages.
Under his leadership, the PSL has transformed itself into a multibillion-rand entity, with annual revenue reaching the R1 billion mark last year.
Despite losing the Absa and Telkom sponsorship deals in the season that has just concluded, the PSL announced a new multimillion-rand deal with satellite broadcaster DStv last month.
Khoza said he was optimistic that they would fill the Telkom Knockout hole left after Telkom’s sponsorship deal was not renewed.
