Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has released a statement indicating that together with the South African Police Service (SAPS), they will fight against football hooliganism.

According to soccerladuma.co.za website, PSL Acting CEO, Cambridge Mokanyane, PSL GM of Football, Derek Blanckensee, and PSL GM of Safety and Security, Phillip Masimong, sat in a three-hour meeting with high ranking SAPS officials on Wednesday, November 28.

Several matters were addressed at the meeting, including the state of hooliganism present in the South African game.

Following a successful sitting, Mokanyane said that this is the first step forward for the PSL, working together with the SAPS.

“We had a very productive operational meeting with the leadership of the SAPS. We really wanted to reinforce the commitment between the PSL and SAPS on curbing spectator misbehaviour. SAPS are a very important stakeholder to the PSL. We have adopted a zero tolerance towards hooliganism,”  Mokanyane said.

SAPS’ Lieutenant General, Elias Mawela, added that they have discussed the way forward, maintaining the high standard of security.

He said, “The SAPS and the PSL had extensive discussions on how we are going to manage and combat troublesome spectators at football games. As a country, we have done very well in hosting and managing many major events. We have created a high standard for ourselves. We have a legacy to protect.”
