The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has dismissed social media rumours suggesting that the league will expand to 20 teams by relegating two sides and promoting four teams.
The message says that the “desired” move to relegate only two teams is meant to save ailing Harare giants Dynamos, who are in the relegation zone.
According to the Chronicle, PSL spokesperson Kudzai Bare rubbished the report, describing it as fake.
“We saw the post as well, but as a league, we can confirm that four teams will be relegated at the end of the season and four teams will be coming in from the four Zifa First Division leagues.
“What we also want to highlight is that when communicating issues of relegation, such communication is done at the beginning of the season and rules and regulations of the competition can’t be changed during the season,” said Bare.
On PSL’s desire to change the calendar, Bare confirmed that they were awaiting Zifa’s guidance. The PSL had written to the association seeking permission to have the local topflight season start in August and end in May with effect from 2019.
