    Currently this is very confusing. Anyhow we shall see what happens.

  2. Anonymous says:

    I think it’s a nice move

  3. GSK11 says:

    What now Christmas break because its too cold…

  4. This sounds interesting, the lower division clubs will also find an opportunity to play with bigger teams.

  5. Positive Thinking says:

    This is not very clear. If the ownership of the league goes to the clubs, what happens during relegation; do the clubs then relinquish ownership to the next team promoted?

    How will the supersport deal work? Will it now fall under the ZPL? What will be the constitution of the ZPL?

    I like the idea, but I think the onion has many layers that need some serious thought and assessment.

    We are good at copying, just copying and usually without thoroughly analysing so as to fit our environment. E.g How many people watch football in Zambia etc

    My question is as follows?

    Where in Africa has this been implemented and it has functioned, apart from South Africa?????

    Please tell us how this will be implemented and function

    Give us the full details, as fans we are entitled to be given all the information so that we understand what this is all about.

    I know countries like the UK, Italy, Germany etc have this in place

    This is colonial thinking wanting to please the Europeans
    Most leagues in Europe was constructed with the weather in mind, but faz not with faz
    Always copying
    Why can’t the Europeans copy us or have their league in the calendar year (from January to December)?
    The reason is simple climate can’t allow them…
