No Fans As Chiefs Confirm Supporter-less Fixture

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the second fixture that will be played behind closed doors as they serve their punishment for April’s violence in Durban.   
 
 
The Amakhosi were told that they had to play three games – one of which was suspended – without supporters after the unsavoury scenes at Moses Mabhida Stadium earlier in the year, with the first of those games being the defeat to Polokwane City last month. 
 
Now, on the back of their victory over Black Leopards, the club have announced that their fixture with Chippa United this weekend will be the second game of their punishment. 
 
A statement on the club’s official website read, “Kaizer Chiefs will this Saturday, 10 November, welcome Chippa United at home-away-from-home at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium. 
 
“The match is scheduled to be played behind ‘Closed Doors’ in accordance with the ruling of the Premier Soccer League’s disciplinary committee following the fan violence that marred Amakhosi’s Nedbank Cup semi-final defeat to Free State Stars at Moses Mabhida Stadium in April." 
 
They went on to say, “We ask all supporters – please don’t come to the stadium as no tickets will be sold as the game is behind closed doors. The match will, however, be shown live on the DStv channel, SuperSport. Kick-off is at 18:00.”
 
Victory for the Glamour Boys could see them rise to second place if results elsewhere go their way, and Giovanni Solinas will be eager to get another three points on the board even without the support of their fans.
