We must use seasons to suit us

It does not mean that just because we are now part of the Fifa family we should do the same.

It does not mean that just because we are now part of the Fifa family we should do the same.

Although the Fifa calendar is based mainly on the European season and for the northern hemisphere region, we in the southern region should reconsider our soccer calendar to meet our needs and Fifa need to assist us.

For the countries that are in the south of the equator, winter is between June and August. Therefore, the soccer season should start from February to November.

Many aspiring sporting people will not have the opportunity of playing soccer and other winter codes during winter, and summer codes during summer.

Past results have proven that our PSL clubs and the country fared well at international level. In 1995 Orlando Pirates won the CAF Club Champions and, in 1996, South Africa won the Afcon.
