PSL To Continue During Afcon Finals 18/07/03
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Executive Committee have decided that the Premier league will not be taking a break during the African Cup of Nations, which is taking place in Tunisia early next year.

The decision was made at the Board of Governors meeting that was held in Johannesburg on Thursday. The meeting was attended by representatives from all PSL and first division clubs.

In previous years there has  been some controversy surrounding this subject, but PSL CEO Trevor Philips has put the correct measures in place to ensure that everyone is happy: "Clubs with three or more players called for national duty will not be expected to play their matches. This does not apply to only to South African players, but players from all countries, he told the official PSL website.

"In the past, clubs were only allowed to postpone matches if they had three South African players in a national squad, but on this occasion the rules applies to everybody." Philips added.

Philips also stated that next season's fixture list will be available by the end of next week.

The CEO also announced his vision for the future of S.A. soccer, which is to be called Gateway 2010. This is a seven year business plan which aims to increase the turnover and profit margins for the PSL and its clubs.

The new PSL logo was also unveiled to the clubs.

Philips was very optimistic about the future of soccer in this country: "I am very happy with the response I received from the clubs, everybody was very excited about the new vision. After this meeting, I can confidently say South African soccer has taken a major step into the future, and I am really proud to be a part of it." he said.
