Orlando Pirates supporters will be relieved to know that their match tonight will be shown live on television, despite being played behind closed doors.

On Tuesday last week, it was confirmed by the league that the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee ruled that Pirates would play one of their matches in a closed stadium, as a punishment for last season’s incident of crowd violence which took place at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on 11 February 2017, during their match against Mamelodi Sundowns.  

It was later confirmed on the same day by Bucs that the match to be played behind closed doors is tonight’s one, against Bidvest Wits.

“The Absa Premiership match between Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits scheduled for Wednesday, 25 April, will now be played behind closed doors in terms of a sanction handed down by the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee.

“Fans who have already bought tickets for this match will be advised in the near future as to how to get a refund,” confirmed Pirates on the club’s official website.

While an earlier indication has been that the supporters would not be able to watch the match at all, it has now been confirmed that, in fact, the clash between the Buccaneers and the Students at the Orlando Stadium will be screened on television.

@LeCowhlohlo, if that is what the Chairman is saying, his remarks are too academic. That is oversimplification.

There has been increased backlash at the rulings of both the DC and DRC in recent weeks, particularly pertaining to the cases of crowd violence and the eligibility of Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro. The DC sanctioned Orlando Pirates to playing two games behind closed doors, one of which is suspended, while Kaizer Chiefs were fined R250 000, with 200 000 suspended, drawing criticism for the leniently of the sentences. The DRC, meanwhile, cleared Ndoro to continue to playing daespite being in contravension of the FIFA regulations. However, Khoza has argued that rules are there to be tested, with due processes in place for appeals from any aggrieved party. ''The one good thing with football is that we've got the DC, appeal's committee, (SAFA)' Arbitration, FIFA and CAS ( Court Of Arbitration For Sport) to test'' outlined Khoza. ''So everybody's got free access to test the outcome of any decision. Whatever doubts or perceptions you have that somebody has tampered with matters, the tests are there. ''If you can check in terms of the turnover of cases, fact of them have succeeded on appeal and arbitration. Now we've just puplished a book on all the decided cases from the PSL, which has its own jurisprudence. ''Its a marvelous thing to have , we've going to distribute it to the media. You can see challenged and how many were not challenged in all these years we've been there.'' some have criticised the involvement of the league's chairman , who is also chairman of member club Pirates regarding disciplinary matters affecting the Buccaneers. The premier soccer league welcomes today's decision of the Gauteng(Local Division of the high Court Johannesburg in the matter between the National Soccer League. ''But the Iron Duke has insisted that no ''favours'' have been done for anybody, while encouraging disgruntled parties to challenge any decisions in the available channels. We do things to the test of our ability and we also have members with 15 years or more experience participating in the DC'' headded. We're not there to do anybody favours, the rules are the things that must be tested. And the rules are in line with FIFA rules. So, whatever happens, if you are not happy and an aggrieved party, you go to appeal, and then to arbitration. If you are still not happy you can go to CAS whatever you say cannot be held against anybody because, whoever is not happy must take the matter up with the highest authority. Hence, the matters take so long sometimes, because of the challenge issues. They do not just leave them for what the DC says. For instance, the DRC was challenged. It's the nature of the game, so you must challenge if you are not happy about it. The process are there. If there were no processed, I would understand, but all processes are open to anybody not satisfied with the decisions...concluded Khoza. @setlaboswana.

What kind of nonsense is that. How are punishing a team if their match will also be shown? Khoza is taking us for a ride.

Khoza is a mafia, and I bet he had a huge influence for this match to be televised.

Televising that Pirates vs Wits would like televising a training session. I mean, all we will be hearing is the screams from coaches and players.
