SuperSport FC denies selling of the club. Were there is smoke, certainly fire is about to explode!

It has been rumoured that SuperSport United have agreed to sell their Premier Soccer League status to BidVest. The Bidvest group sold the franchise and dissolved historic club Wits last season, but have been rumoured to be keen on getting back into the game.

SuperSport United deny PSL franchise has been sold

Matthews insists the stories are false and claims that the continuous rumours surrounding the ownership of the club are becoming tedious.

“I can’t keep commenting on the same old stories that come without a source or owner,” Matthews said.

“Every week it’s either a player moving or club being sold. The club is not being sold and neither are any of my players, unless their international buyout clauses are met.”

An anonymous source claims that the deal is already done with club owners Multichoice allegedly keen on cutting costs.

“Supersport sold the status,” the source told

“At the moment it’s very confidential. They’ve sold to the very same Bidvest company that sold theirs to TTM. SuperSport are in dispute about money because now they sponsor the PSL and MultiChoice Diski Challenge.

“When the season finishes they will announce it. The negotiations are done, SuperSport will be sold. The money that DStv is spending on PSL and MDC is making it difficult for them to afford running the club.”

SuperSport United was formed when M-Net bought Pretoria City in 1994. The club are founder members of the Premier Soccer League and have competed in every edition of the Premiership, winning the title on three occasions. SuperSport United have also won the Nedbank Cup five times and the MTN 8 thrice and lifted the Telkom Knockout trophy.

Outside of the big three, they are arguably the most successful club in modern South African football.
