CAF Hit SuperSport With R200k Fine & Warning

SuperSport United have been slapped with a fine of around R200,000 for the events that transpired at the Lucas Moripe Stadium after the CAF Confederation Cup final.
 
 
The pitch was stormed by supporters after TP Mazembe beat SuperSport 2-1 on aggregate following the 0-0 draw in South Africa, with the Congolese giants retaining the trophy that they got their hands on last year.
 
CAF have referred to the incident as a ‘security flaw’, fining Matsatsanta and warning them that they risk playing future games behind closed doors if there is a repeat offence.
 
A statement said, “In pursuant to Articles 83 and 151 of the CAF Disciplinary Code, Supersport has been fined 15,000 US Dollars for the security flaw in the organization of the match. The South African club has also been cautioned against a repeat of such incident, or risk playing their games behind closed doors.” 
 
 
Meanwhile, Mazembe have also been fined over R68,000 for the behaviour of their fans after the encounter in Pretoria.
 
They added, “On the part of TP Mazembe, they were imposed with a fine of 5,000 US Dollars for the behaviour of their fans, which is a violation of Articles 82 and 83 of the CAF Disciplinary Code.”
