Unruly Bucs fans still guilty

Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League has welcomed the ruling of the arbitrator in the matter between Orlando Pirates FC and the PSL.

According to the Football411.com website, the PSL Disciplinary Committee found the Buccaneers guilty of spectator misbehaviour after their fans invaded the pitch following their victory over Bidvest Wits in the Telkom Knockout final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in December 2011.

A goal each from Thulasizwe Mbuyane, Daine Klate and Isaac Chansa buried Wits, while Sifiso Myeni, who has since joined the Bucs, scored the consolation goal for the Students.

The arbitrator upheld the decision of the DC that found Pirates guilty of spectator misbehaviour. The DC decision was also confirmed by the SAFA Appeals Board.

Pirates were contesting the constitutionality of Rule 53 of the League's rules which has the effect that a club is liable for the behaviour of its supporters at football matches.

Simultaneous with the appeal to SAFA, Pirates had applied to the DC to suspend all other proceedings relating to Rule 53 until its appeal was finalised.

Pirates appealed the decision and the Appeals Board confirmed the DC decision and dismissed Pirates appeal with costs.

Subsequently, the case went for arbitration.
