FNB blames PSL for money loss 10/12/04
The FNB Stadium management has blamed the Premier Soccer League for the loss of R280 000 in potential earnings.

FNB stadium manager Dennis Mumble insists that the PSL's refusal to stage the Supa 8 and Coca-Cola Cup finals at Soccer City as a direct result for the loss of earnings.

The Supa 8 final was played in Durban in October, while the Coca-Cola Cup will be played in Bloemfontein on December 18.

"I have written a letter to the PSL asking them when they made the decision to abandon the FNB stadium as an avenue for big matches. I also spoke to PSL CEO Trevor Phillips about this disturbing trend," Mumble told the Daily Sun.

"We would net about R140 000 for a capacity crowd for a cup final. It is money wasted. The fact that these finals are being played at rugby venues is annoying. I am not against rugby, but against the fact that the PSL are not supporting soccer."

"We need to support football structures. If we do not, then how are we going to run the 2010 World Cup finals," he added.
