Sundowns fined R100 000
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns have been handed a R100 000 fine by the PSL's
Disciplinary Committee after their fans behaved poorly during the match
against Bidvest Wits in March.
The Brazilians' supporters brought the club into disrepute at the
Lucas Moripe Stadium, and Downs sent out an apology afterwards
condemning their fans' behaviour. The fans threw objects at officials
during the 1-1 draw.
Sundowns stated in their apology on the club's website: "We wish
to unreservedly apologise to the PSL, its sponsors, and to the
supporters of football in our country.
"The Club views this matter in a serious light and we have
launched an investigation into the incident to try and identify the
spectators involved so that we can take appropriate action."
The fine is suspended for 12 months, and the club must make
announcements asking fans to behave properly before all future matches
kick off, as well as at half time.
