FIFA Refuse To Adjudicate Matter Between SA PSL and Tendai Ndoro

FIFA are said to have refused to make a judgement on the dispute between the Premier Soccer League and Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro.

The dispute arising from Ndoro's eligibility after he featured for three clubs in the same season – Orlando Pirates, Al Faisaly and Ajax Cape Town – has returned to SAFA for arbitration.

The matter was initially heard by the PSL's Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC), who ruled in favour of Ndoro and declared the Zimbabwean international eligible to play.

However, the PSL challenged the DRC's ruling at an arbitration hearing at SAFA, who then referred the matter to FIFA by arguing that the DRC did not have jurisdiction over the matter.

According to a brief statement from FIFA, which was shared by Ajax through their official Twitter account on Friday afternoon, the Players' Status Committee – which is chaired by former SAFA CEO Raymond Hack – have ordered judgement back to "the competent authorities in South Africa".

This is in accordance with Article 3 of the Rules Governing the Procedures of the Players' Status Committee and the Dispute Resolution Chamber pertaining to jurisdiction, while cross-referenced with Article 22 and 23 (pictured below) of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.
