Chiefs slapped with R200k fine by PSL for spectator misconduct

Kaizer Chiefs have once again found themselves in the bad books of the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee for spectator misconduct on Monday.

Amakhosi have been walloped with a R200,000 fine, with R50,000 suspended for a period of six months on condition that they are not found guilty of the same offence.

This is after the club supporters displayed violent behavior during their match against SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium recently – the second offence so far this season after their first misconduct at the Mbombela Stadium after their 1-0 loss to TS Galaxy.


“I can confirm that earlier today, Kaizer Chiefs FC appeared before the PSL DC to answer to two separate counts of spectator misbehaviour,” said PSL Prosecutor Zola Majavu.

“This is because of missile probing incidents that took place on the 20th and 23rd of September, PSL and MTN fixtures, respectively.

“They pleaded guilty as charged, and having been so convicted, and upon listening to the submissions from the prosecutor and their representatives, both in mitigation and aggravation of sanction, the PSL DC issued the following ruling regarding sanction one.

“You would also remember that a few weeks ago, Kaizer Chiefs Football Club was found guilty of the same offence, and they were issued a monetary fine of R100,000, of which R70k was to be payable effectively, and R30,000 suspended on condition that during the next 12 months, they are not to be found guilty of the same offence again.

“Sadly, a few weeks later, they find themselves convicted again on exact same offence, which means that the suspended R30,000 now comes into operation immediately.

“In respect of the new contraventions, which for purposes of sanction were taken as one they were issued a monetary fine of R200,000 of which R50,000 is suspended for a period of six months on condition that during the period of suspension are not found guilty of the same offence again.”


Amakhosi will now have to pay an amount of R180,000, including the costs of the seating.
