Pirates Handed Punishment By PSL DC

Orlando Pirates have received their punishment from the Premier Soccer League disciplinary committee after being found guilty last month.

The Buccaneers were found guilty for 'unreasonably' denying TS Galaxy chairman Tim Sukazi access to the Orlando Stadium ahead of DStv Premiership clash in December.

Premier Soccer League prosecutor Zola Majavu has now confirmed the Soweto giants have been fined R100 000 and have to write an apology to the league.

"Orlando Pirates was fined a monitory amount of R100 000, which amount is suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that during the period of suspension, Orland Pirates is not found guilty of the same offence," Majavu said via the PSL media department.

"They were also ordered to pay the costs of the DC hearings, which cost for approximately four sittings would be computed by the league and sent to Orlando Pirates for payment.

"Thirdly, they were further directed to send a written apology to the league. In that apology they need to recognise that they had brought the league, the game, SAFA, CAF, FIFA and the sponsors into disrepute in the manner in which their officials manhandled Mr Sukazi."
