PSL Punish Pirates, Fans To Suffer

The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has placed a suspended sanction on Orlando Pirates following crowd violence that took place at Loftus Stadium in February 2017, during their match against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Last season's 6-0 win by Mamelodi Sundowns over Pirates saw Bucs fans take to the field to express their dissatisfaction with the result. The league has now handed down the ruling, following the DC's decision.

“The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has handed down its sanctions against Orlando Pirates FC arising from the crowd violence which took place at Loftus Stadium on 11 February 2017 during the club’s match against Mamelodi Sundowns FC. 

“The Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned Orlando Pirates by ordering that the club must play two home matches in a closed stadium. The implementation of one of these matches has been suspended for a period 24 months.

“In the Disciplinary Committee’s opinion, the sentence was warranted because of the seriousness of the misconduct,” confirmed the PSL in a statement.

‘In addition, the Disciplinary Committee was of the view that a sanction of this nature is the only way in which the fans of the club could be punished simultaneously with the club, for their errant behaviour during football matches. Orlando Pirates was also ordered to pay the costs of the sittings of the Disciplinary Committee,” confirmed the league.
