The South African Premiership - the richest league in Africa - is seeking a new sponsor after Absa Bank announced it is ending a 13-year partnership. League chairman Irvin Khoza said there are four contenders to take over the 16-club championship, which runs from August to May and is screened throughout the continent. The veteran official, who is also chairman of hugely popular Soweto club Orlando Pirates, gave little away when pressed by reporters for the names of the potential new sponsors. "We are in discussions with four potential sponsors - two of these companies are international and two are local," he said. "The new sponsor of the Premiership will be announced after the 2019/2020 season is concluded (probably in late August)."
