The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has charged Kaizer Chiefs FC with bringing the League into disrepute and misconduct.
The PSL said this through a statement released on Monday. The charges follow Saturday’s Nedbank Cup fixture against Free State Stars FC in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.
Chiefs supporters invaded the pitch, assaulting some supporters and security officuals and damaging property.
PSL Chair Irvin Khoza says there will be a thorough investigation into the rampage by Kaizer Chiefs fans. The violence resulted in serious injury to a security guard, caught on camera. The security guard has now been released from hospital.
Khoza says the police struggle to deploy enough officers to such events, due to lack of funding. Speaking at a media briefing in Johannesburg, Khoza also condemned the violence by fans at the stadium.
Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on May 3, 2018.
