PSL set to ban unruly fans

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.

    What about "excessive" dagga smoking in stadium particularly Orlando Stadium - so PSL does not see this as a problem. Take your family there at own risk!

    Yah right. They cant fill the stadiums anyway so even less revenue. Not a chance. Take out the seats and make them stand

    Pirates club must pay coz they don't want to change the coach. its surprising how a big team like pirates can use a development coach after winning so many trophies? ya Khoza must foot the bill for his reckless decision. Rather be seen than heard vele i'll watch the game on SSHD4 at least there i can switch it off when we lose.
