The third edition of the Mzansi Super League(MSL) which is set to begin in December may see two new additional teams added to the tournament.
The two new teams will be based in East London and Bloemfontein with home games being played at Buffalo Park and Mangaung Oval respectively. Cricket South Africa is also negotiating a broadcasting deal with SuperSport after the first two editions were broadcasted on free-to-air state-owned media SABC.
CSA failed to acquire a broadcasting deal for the first two editions after broadcasting negotiations with SuperSport fell apart. The absence of a major broadcast deal, however, meant that the tournament has not been the money-maker CSA had hoped it would be.
The full competition was therefore aired on the SABC, who did not pay anything but have a much wider reach than paid TV. CSA is mindful of capturing the interest of as many people as possible and so, hope to continue offering the SABC some content that is most likely to come in the form of highlights.
CSA has also hinted in an overhaul of the domestic structure but the details have not yet been unveiled.
It is still unclear if the tournament will go ahead with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The restrictions in South Africa currently do not allow for any Sporting events to take place.
