Unruly fans (Gallo)
Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League have threatened to impose strict punishments on any fans who disrupt matches following a string of unruly supporter behaviour.

Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are both set for Disciplinary Committee sanctions after fans of both clubs threw objects onto the field during their respective MTN8 encounters last month.

Mamelodi Sundowns were the latest to experience trouble from their fans, who attempted to storm the field and confront Brazilians coach Johan Neeskens following their PSL defeat to Maritzburg United on Sunday.

"Following the incidents and unruly behaviour at our stadiums during the last few weeks, we have decided to take tough measures to stop this behaviour by a faction of supporters at our games," PSL head of stakeholders and communications Connie Motshumi told The Sowetan.

"We are considering a number of ways, including introducing stiff penalties such as individual bans, naming and/or showing pictures of those responsible for instigating unruly behaviour at the stadiums."

The Buccaneers and Amakhosi will come before the PSL's DC on Friday to answer charges of supporter misbehaviour.
