PSL Confirm Chiefs’ Punishment After FNB Violence

The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that they have sanctioned Kaizer Chiefs following the misbehaviour of their fans at FNB Stadium earlier this month.

Following the 3-0 defeat to Chippa United on April 7th, a section of Chiefs fans proceeded to throw objects down onto the field at Steve Komphela and his players, with chants of 'Steve Must Go' being heard at the same time.

It was always expected that Chiefs would be punished following the events, and the exact details of the sanctions have now been laid out by the PSL.

The statement read:

The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has handed down its sanctions against Kaizer Chiefs FC on charges of spectator misbehaviour resulting from the club’s failure to provide adequate security.

This is after Kaizer Chiefs FC’s supporters threw objects onto the pitch after their Absa Premiership fixture against Chippa United on 07 April 2018 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

Last night, the Club was found guilty of misconduct in failing to provide adequate security at the game.

The Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned Kaizer Chiefs with a fine of R250 000.00 of which R200 000.00 was suspended for 24 months on condition they are not found guilty of a similar offence during that period.

This news follows the decision earlier this week to force Orlando Pirates to play two games - one suspended - behind closed doors. There will be no fans at the encounter between Bucs and Bidvest Wits next week.
