Federation Internationale de Football Association refers Tendai Ndoro's matter back to competent authorities in South Africa

14 April 2018

Ndoro has represented three clubs this season - Orlando Pirates, Saudia Arabian side Al Faisaly and Ajax Cape Town, but according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rules, a player is only permitted to represent two clubs in one season.

In their bid to have Ndoro back on the pitch, Ajax approached the South Gauteng High Court a few weeks ago after Safa Arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC ruled that the player shouldn't be allowed to play and referred the matter to Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Ndoro has played for Orlando Pirates, Al Faisaly (Saudi Arabia) and Ajax this season. At the arbitration hearing, the case was referred to Federation Internationale de Football Association, with arbitrator Advocate Cassim declaring that the DRC had no jurisdiction over the case.

According to a brief statement from Federation Internationale de Football Association, 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".

The Urban Warriors and Ndoro had their application denied, but another hearing will now take place on 19 April 2018 at he Gauteng High Court. "Ajax could get into more trouble because Federation Internationale de Football Association does not allow the recourse to ordinary court".
