JOHANNESBURG - Sekhukhune United FC have won their case at the High Court in Johannesburg to be installed as GladAfrica Championship champions.

Royal AM had initially won the Championship after ending the season with 51 points, one ahead of second placed Sekhukhune.

However, a PSL arbitration ruling awarded Sekhukhune three additional points after finding Polokwane City had broken NFD rules.

This as they did not field five under-23 players.

Polokwane City and fourth placed TS Sporting unsuccessfully challenged the ruling in the High Court.

This means second placed Royal AM will head to the play-offs with third placed Richards Bay and Chippa United from next Tuesday.
