PSL promise justice to perpetrators of fan violence

South Africa's Premier Soccer League has promised justice will be meted out to those fans who caused mayhem after Kaizer Chiefs' 2-0 loss to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi finals on Saturday.

Chiefs supporters invaded the pitch, lit fires in the stands, assaulted security personnel and caused millions of Rand's worth of damage to stadium and TV equipment.

It is a second, serious incident involving the club's supporters this month and the league has vowed to come down hard on those found guilty.

"The Premier Soccer League strongly condemns acts of hooliganism and violence that took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night during the fixture between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars," the PSL said in a statement on Sunday morning.

"Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals are witnessed last night cannot be tolerated.

"The League will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for this hooliganism are subjected to judicial processes.

"The League is currently awaiting reports from all relevant role players."

It is likely that Chiefs will receive a charge sheet this coming week and punishment against them will be swift, with the club just last week receiving a R250,000 fine, R200,000 of which was suspended for 24 months on the condition there was no repeat of the fan violence that followed their 3-0 loss to Chippa United earlier in April.

They will have to cough up the remainder of that month, and also face fresh charges.
