PSL AGM Resolutions

The Premier Soccer League Board of Governors at its Annual General Meeting held on 17 March 2019 in Harare made the following resolutions:

 

Standard Player Contract

The Premier Soccer League and Footballers Union of Zimbabwe are finalising a Standard Player contract subject to approval by the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA). This will go a long way in resolving player disputes.

The Premier Soccer League Strategic Planning Process

The PSL Board resolved to immediately commence a strategic planning process which will clearly outline the PSL vision for the next five years. The strategic planning process is set to start in April 2019.

Gate Charges

The Board of Governors resolved to increase gate charges for the 2019 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season to RTGS$5 for Rest of Ground. Clubs that wish to charge more are required to apply to the PSL, however, gate charges must not be more than $10 (Rest of Ground) for high profile matches. The gate charges may be reviewed during the course of the season.

Abuse of Ball Boys

The Board of Governors noted with concern the abuse of ball boys/girls by clubs and resolved to charge clubs a fine of RTGS$2000 (two thousand RTGS dollars) for the offence.

The abuse of ball boys/girls refers to clubs instructing ball boys/girls to withhold footballs, frustrate opponents, employ time wasting tactics during matches or any other action that the match referee may deem to be an act of mischief.

Club Licensing

The AGM reiterated the importance of Club Licensing and resolved to cooperate with the newly appointed ZIFA Club Licensing First Instance Body.
