The PFAG is pleased at the prospect of ushering in domestic club football in the new year, and the chance for our members to exhibit their talents and thrill local football fans once again.

Events over the past few months have taken a toll on all stakeholders in the domestic game, most especially the professional players, and we welcome the efforts of the Normalization Committee to streamline activities.

We are happy to note that recent deliberations between all interested parties have borne such a positive outcome, and we look ahead with excitement to the much-anticipated return of domestic football action in the country.

The PFAG continues to support all moves aimed at improving our beautiful game, especially for the betterment of all our professional footballers.

We continue to stand with them, and for them!!"
