Sponsors start panicking as Orlando Pirates boss Irvin Khoza reaches the end of the road

Dr. Irvin Khoza, the long-serving chairperson of the Premier Soccer League (PSL), has reportedly hinted at stepping down from his position and not standing for re-election in the upcoming PSL elections in November.

This news has sent shockwaves through the SA football fraternity, as Khoza has been a dominant figure in the league since he was first elected in 2003.

Known for his influential leadership and remarkable success in steering the PSL to become one of the top leagues in Africa, Khoza’s potential departure marks the end of an era.

Over his five terms in charge, he has transformed the league into a profitable and respected entity, playing a pivotal role in securing groundbreaking broadcast deals that have revolutionized South African football.

At 76 years old, Khoza recognizes that he is no longer the youthful leader he once was when he first assumed his position over two decades ago.

Believing that it is time for him to step aside and allow new leadership to take the reins, he has expressed his intention to pass on the baton and take a well-deserved rest.

The news of Khoza’s possible exit has raised concerns among sponsors, investors, and broadcast partners, who have come to rely on his strong leadership and vision for the league’s success.

The prospect of a successor to fill his shoes looms large, with questions surrounding the future direction of the PSL in the absence of the iconic “Iron Duke.”
