It was previously reported that due to the Richards Bay outfit being cash-strapped, they were looking to sell the club.
Nonetheless, it has now been confirmed that AmaZulu will return to the elite league by virtue of acquiring the status of Amabhubesi after the PSL approved the deal.
The PSL issued a statement on Thursday confirming the sale.
“The club formerly known as Thanda Royal Zulu will campaign in the Premier Division of the League under the name AmaZulu Football Club and be located in Durban,” the statement read.
Furthermore, the PSL also confirmed the sale of two other NFD clubs.
“Richards Bay Football Club will campaign in the National First Division and be located in Richards Bay. The club formerly known as FC Cape Town will campaign in the National First Division under the name of Ubuntu Cape Town Football Club,” the statement concluded.
