Chiefs Fined, PSL Confirm Amount

Kaizer Chiefs have been fined by the Premier Soccer League after pleading guilty for non-fulfilment of fixtures.   

Amakhosi have had an ongoing case against them at the PSL after the club’s failure to honour DStv Premiership matches against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows in December due to Covid-19 outbreak at Naturena at the time.

Despite having arbitrator Nazeer Cassim ruling in their favour in March, it was later confirmed by the PSL’s Prosecutor Zola Majavu, that the league had taken a decision to take the ruling on review.

Majavu has now confirmed that Chiefs have been fined, following their appearance before the PSL DC earlier today (Tuesday).

“I can confirm that earlier this morning Kaizer Chiefs Football Club appeared before the PSL DC to answer to charges of misconduct in relation to their non-fulfilment of the two fixtures in December amid Covid. Those were in relation to Cape Town City as well as Lamontville Golden Arrows FC. That matter was put on hold pending the finalisation of an arbitration which Kaizer Chiefs had referred the matter to. Upon the arbitrator ruling in their favour, I discontinued the prosecution. Later, the league executive committee took that decision on review and they succeeded last week on the 10th of May, therefore paving way for me to proceed with the misconduct charges. That particular matter was then enrolled for hearing for today and I’m pleased to inform you that the matter was indeed duly finalised on the following basis:

  1. Kaizer Chiefs Football Club pleaded guilty and I accepted the plea which resulted in the DC returning a guilty verdict. We immediately proceeded to make submissions with regard to aggravation and mitigation of sentence whereafter the PSL DC ruled as follows with regard to sanction. 

1.1 Kaizer Chiefs Football Club was fined an amount of R200 000 of which 50% is suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that during the period of suspension they are not found guilty of the same offence again. In fact, they have to pay R100 000.

    1.2 They were further ordered to pay the costs of the sittings, which costs are to be administratively computed by the league and once so finalised they will be on forwarded to Kaizer Chiefs for onward payment.”
