Global Sports Commerce failed to pay Mzansi Super League rights fee, report finds

A report into misconduct committed by Cricket South Africa officials has found that Global Sports Commerce, the governing body’s commercial and international media rights agency for its Mzansi Super League (MSL) T20 competition, failed to pay its rights fee for the 2019 edition and reached a settlement with CSA earlier this summer.

Instead of paying its rights fee for 2019, the report from the South Africa-based Fundudzi Forensic Services found that Global Sports Commerce (GSC) offered a settlement payment of $1.16m (€984,900) to CSA in May this year. The settlement was agreed on June 6 and was set to be paid in three instalments, the last of which was due to be paid on August 28.
