Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League have suspended the cases involving spectator misbehaviour pending the outcome of an appeal made by Orlando Pirates.

The Buccaneers are currently facing three charges relating to fan trouble, although the Soweto giants have challenged the interpretation of Rule 53.2.3 and Rule 53.3.4 of the National Soccer League which claim they are strictly/vicariously liable for the conduct of their spectators.

Of those three charges, two are being contested by Pirates while the third is still being heard by the Disciplinary Committee.

The PSL DC panel said: "It is only proper that until the Appeal Board (of SAFA) decides on whether have been giving a proper interpretation to this rule or not, then all other matters that are pending the DC, will thereafter start giving the interpretation as pronounced by the Appeals Board."
