Irvin Khoza says he is honoured to be re-elected as chairman of the PSL.

The Orlando Pirates chairman was re-elected unopposed during the NSL quadrennial Annual General Meeting held in, Sandton, Johannesburg on Wednesday.

Khoza will be serving his seventh term as the League chairman, having took the reins back in 2002.

”Thanks to the members of the board of governors for the confidence they have shown in me to continue being involved in the administration of the business,” said Khoza.

”We’ve built an institution worth defending. This is an investment business, and not a cash and carry business where the buyer and seller are protected by the instant nature of the transaction.”

The overwhelming support for Khoza is hardly surprising, given how the PSL has grown into a multi-billion business under his guidance.

But the 72-year-old admitted the new leadership faces a unique challenge, hosting matches under the strict Covid-19 lockdown regulation.

He added: “The new reality (Covid-19 regulations) has brought about the new normal. We have to grow our product through technology. The next term requires patience and the grooming of the younger generation.”

The seven other members were voted for by representatives from both the PSL and the NFD.

Long-serving members Kaizer Motaung, Mato Madlala, Stan Matthews, Dr Rejoice Simelane and David Thidiela have also been re-elected.

Khumbulani Khonco has not been re-elected while John Comitis has returned after he missed out in the last elections.

Robert Benadie will be serving his first term.
