Kaiser Chiefs hire Arendse as counsel

Club taking legal action against PSL in postponement dispute





South African football club Kaizer Chiefs have hired high profile sports lawyer Norman Arendse as they embark on a legal battle with the Premier Soccer League (PSL).


The club failed to fulfil two fixtures because of a surge in Covid cases, but the PSL rejected their request for the matches to be postponed.


Kaizer Chiefs now face a six point deduction, but they want to appeal against the decision to deny the postponement request and have hired the experienced Arendse to fight their case.


Arendse, a former cricketer, is a widely respected sports lawyer who has previously represented the South African Football Association in disputes with FIFA.
