Briefly.co.za reported in June 2020 that Telkom might be the next Premier Soccer League sponsors after Absa announced they will not renew their sponsorship after the 2019/2020 season. The telecoms company is already the sponsor of domestic operations, the Telkom Knockout (TKO). Absa has been supporting South African football for 16 years.
Absa sponsorship made PSL one of the wealthiest and most organized soccer leagues in Africa. The exit of the banking giant leaves a big gap in the country’s football league. Top PSL officials are yet to reveal the next company to fill the Absa position.
