The league agreed on the reduction at its pre-season meeting held at Chesterfield in Area 18B on Saturday.
CRPL chairperson Robert Gama confirmed the development to The Nation, saying they have reduced the affiliation fee from K20 000 ($119) to K15 000 ($90).
“Most of the teams are self-sponsored and affiliation fees come from playersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ contributions; hence, the decision to reduce the figure,” said Gama.
Umqombothi vice-general secretary Nelson Chidiwa has hailed the league for the consideration.
Meanwhile, the league has organised a threeÃ¢â‚¬â€œweek pre-season tournament that will start on Saturday.
The draw will be held tomorrow from 6pm at Zhux Pub (Top Level Club) in Area 3.
Registration fee for the pre-season tournament is K12 000 ($71) per team.
