PLCA promises payment to RSPL match officials
Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA) vice chairman Carvel Stewart said arrangements are now being made for referees and match commissions to receive their outstanding payments owed to them by his organisation.
The referees and match commissioners are reported owed approximately $2.32 million in outstanding fees for league play alone, and over $4 million including fees for last season's playoff matches. When contacted yesterday, PLCA general manager Pat Garel refused to comment on whether any of the money has been paid to any of the parties.
But Stewart told STAR Sports that the PLCA been working to ensure that some of these payments are made later this week to both parties.
"The payment is an ongoing process because it is not a one stop thing," he said. "All these payments are based on cash flow, because when there is cash then it flows and when there isn't any, then we have to work on getting some, but some is going to be made this week," Stewart said.
He said that his organisation is now also reviewing all the documents relating to all outstanding payments to ensuring all individuals are paid.
