The Premier Soccer League (PSL) have confirmed that the GladAfrica Championship Trophy will be handed to the Champions on the last day of the campaign, regardless of what transpires in Wednesday’s fixtures.

Log Leaders Ajax Cape Town are in with a chance to make a comeback to the elite league after two seasons in the first division.
