Ajax Cape Town relegated from the South African Premier League due to sanctions

The club said they were now consulting with their legal team regarding William Mokhari SC's arbitration ruling released yesterday which dumped them out of the top-flight league.

"Among other issues‚ the club will seek to interdict the promotion playoffs from commencing [today] at 3pm. This will be sought pending an urgent review of the arbitrator's award this morning". But FIFA rules prohibit a player to play for three different clubs in a single season.

Mokhari forfeited three matches - wins against Platinum Stars and SuperSport United‚ and a draw against Polokwane City - in favour of Ajax's opponents as he ruled that the club was the third Ndoro had played for this season‚ in contravention of Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations.

"After our last match of the season‚ the players did video analysis and I am happy they will be ready for the clash". As a result, Ajax were docked nine points, effectively relegating Muhsin Ertugral's men to the second tier.

Ajax were also fined R350 000. Ndoro was fielded in games against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City, SuperSport United, Cape Town City and Orlando Pirates.

Ajax can still appeal the ruling with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Polokwane City's appeal and Supersport United's Protest were also upheld.
