Pirates vs Wits match to be broadcast live

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Absa Premiership match between Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits at Orlando Stadium next Wednesday will be broadcast live despite being played in an empty stadium.

The Premier Soccer League’s  Disciplinary Committee has ordered Pirates to play two home matches behind closed doors as punishment, following their supporters unruly behaviour against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld in February last year.

One of the matches has been suspended for a period of 24 months. The media will be allowed to cover the Pirates match against Wits.
