In what promises to be a week full of suspense, anxiety and drama, the Absa Premiership title race will be heading for an epic ending.
At this stage, with up to five teams still in the running for the R10 Million winner’s cheque, a better finish could not be asked for.
“The Absa Premiership presents a unique scenario that will see this competition undecided in the penultimate week for the 5th consecutive season running and this showcases the competitive nature of the Premiership and how clubs are striving to take home the prized trophy,” said Lynn Naude, Absa General Manager Sponsorships.
Regardless of this weekend’s outcome, the trophy will be handed out on May 19 and any of three venues will be on call to host the 2011/2012 Absa Premiership Champions.
“The PSL is ready for whatever possibility and permutation is thrown at us,” said PSL CEO, Stan Matthews. “We are prepared to make the occasion of the 19th May a memorable one with a helicopter on standby to ensure that the trophy reaches the Champions.
“In the interest of all stakeholders, we went with best global practice where the trophy gets handed on the last day. We didn’t take the decision lightly as we consulted widely with all stakeholders and also our international partners,” added Matthews.
Fans across the country stand to benefit from the vibe, hype and excitement around various activities planned for the final week and at the stadiums.
