Cape Town - Judge Denise Fisher has granted the Premier Soccer League (PSL) leave to appeal in the ongoing eligibility saga of former Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) announced previously its decision to appeal the ruling by Judge Fisher to reinstate Ajax Cape Town back into the Absa Premiership.
After the National Soccer League (NSL) Board of Governors held an emergency meeting, the soccer body at a press conference announced it had approved a decision to appeal, while also confirming that the league will kick off in the first weekend of August.
Previously Judge Fisher set aside the ruling by SAFA Arbitrator William Mokhari and ordered that Ajax should regain their Absa Premiership status.
Fisher referred the eligibility of striker Tendai Ndoro - over which Ajax had effectively been relegated - to the FIFA Players Status Committee.
Additionally PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza blamed Ndoro for the ongoing saga over his alleged ineligibility to play for the Urban Warriors during the 2017/18 season.
"Ndoro could have resolved this matter if he had gone to the FIFA Players' Status Committee first to clarify his position," Khoza said.
Judge Fisher's ruling set aside the decision of Mokhari, who docked Ajax seven points for fielding Ndoro after the Zimbabwe international represented three different teams in one season.
Judge Mudau is now set to rule over Ajax Cape Town's urgent interdict to stop the start of the upcoming 2018/19 Absa Premiership season.
