Zifa right on rel­e­ga­tion

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

EDI­TOR — The Pre­mier Soc­cer League should just con­form to the sug­ges­tion by the Zifa coun­cil which will see us hav­ing a 20 team league.

It could ac­tu­ally be good con­sid­er­ing that FC Plat­inum, Ngezi, Tsholot­sho, Harare City, Bu­l­awayo City, Mutare City, Chicken Inn, How Mine, Border, Tri­an­gle, ZPC and even Cha­pungu are all re­cent ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the re­gional pro­mo­tion pro­gramme.

If any­thing, they should be ad­vo­cat­ing a 20 team league, four di­rect pro­mo­tions, and two play-off po­si­tions be­tween some teams fin­ish­ing third, se­cond and two of the rel­e­gated teams this year.

A di­rect de­mo­tion of four teams does not work be­cause of the late no­tice.

Be­sides, the Zifa coun­cil­lors may even have the power to get the league dis­solved and form a new league.

Zifa is cur­rently mov­ing to make ev­ery­thing fair by re­quest­ing four di­rect pro­mo­tions and these play offs which will de­ter­mine the other two teams to join the league.

There is need for to­tal com­mit­ment and par­tic­i­pa­tion by PSL clubs in this pro­gramme. It favours all cur­rent PSL teams in­clud­ing those to be rel­e­gated. It is most likely to im­prove com­pe­ti­tion. Sig­nif­i­cant Watemwa, via e-mail
