SAFA President, Kirsten Nematandani has spoken out strongly against the growing incidents of hooliganism within South African football.

Johannesburg - Six more soccer fans handed themselves to Dobsonville, Soweto, police on Tuesday after Mamelodi Sundowns fans vandalised the local stadium, Johannesburg police said on Tuesday.

"The six men arrived this morning (Tuesday) at the Dobsonville police station and will appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court later today or tomorrow," Warrant Office Kay Makhubela said.

This took the number of people who had handed themselves to police since Saturday to nine. They would face malicious damage to property, trespassing, and vandalism charges.

The three other men who handed themselves over at the weekend will appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

On Sunday, September 30, Sundowns supporters tore down the stadium's security fence, stormed the pitch and caused about R27 000 worth of damage after their team lost to Moroka Swallows.
