Ajax Cape Town's court ruling might come at a hefty price for PSL

Ajax Cape Town is back in the Premier Soccer League after being relegated to the National First Division for fielding Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro in three league matches.

The club approached the Western Cape High Court to set aside that decision and the court ruled in its favour.

The ruling restores Ajax Cape Town’s points and replaces them back to 15th position on the PSL log and out of the automatic relegation places, which also means that Amazulu who were pushed out of the top eight, return and SuperSport drop down to 11th.

Editor of Soccer Laduma, Vuyani Joni says this ruling is going to throw everything in disarray because there are also other teams that are going to affected by this.

Vuyani Joni, Editor of Soccer Laduma

Of course Ajax is going to fight for their position in te PSL but where does that leave Black Leopards who won the promotion...

Vuyani Joni, Editor of Soccer Laduma

According to Joni, because of this ruling, the PSL might be forced to go back to having 18 teams in the league, which will obviously come at a hefty price.
