- There is just no end in sight in the saga involving the Premier Soccer League and Kaizer Chiefs with regards to the drawn out disciplinary procedure
- Chiefs did not honour two fixtures in December after dozens of players and staff were laid low by a Covid-19 outbreak at the club
- The Amakhosi then referred the matter to the South African Football Association for arbitration, which was postponed to a later date
The arbitration process between the Premier Soccer League and Kaizer Chiefs has been postponed in its first sitting.
The case was related to the Amakhosi being punished with a forfeiture of points for missing fixtures without permission in December. This was after the team suffered a Covid-19 outbreak, resulting in not enough players being available for the fixtures they did not honour, namely Golden Arrows and Cape Town.
Soccer Laduma reported that Kaizer Chiefs had appealed to the league to postpone the said fixture, with this appeal being denied. The PSL's disciplinary committee then charged the club, resulting in the latter requesting it be referred to the South African Football Association for arbitration.

Kaizer Chiefs face another transfer ban, Amazulu pursues legal action against Amakhosi over Siyethemba Sithebe
Kaizer Chiefs already have one legal case already pending with the Premier Soccer League, and they soon could be in the middle of another legal battle with Amazulu and FIFA
As reported on Sports Brief, Kaizer Chiefs spent most of the January transfer window attempting to sign wantaway Amazulu midfielder, Siyethemba Sithebe, to the club. Sithebe has agreed to join the Amakhosi at the end of the season when his contract with the Usuthu ends.
According to the publication, Amazulu is gathering evidence to prove that Chiefs approached the player before they were legally allowed to do so. Sithebe entered the last six months of his contract with Amazulu and was therefore allowed to agree on terms with another team.
