Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates have been fined by the PSL after pleading guilty to contravening Rule 12.2 and Rule 12.3 of the PSL rules, and subsequently sentenced with a fine of R50 000, of which half has been suspended for 12 months.

According to the soccerladuma.co.za website, the charge relates to the game against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on March 9, 2013, where the team failed to change their strip, as the away side, in order to avoid a clash of colours. In addition, Bucs have been ordered to pay for the cost of the hearing.

The league’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) has also past judgement on a number of other cases involving three of the NFD outfits.

Blackburn Rovers had been charged with contravening Rule 10.1 after their players failed to report to the change rooms at the stipulated time in their game against Roses United on November, 24, 2012 at the Botshabelo Stadium. The team paid an admission of guilt fine of R5 000.

Roses United were charged with contravening Rule 8.9.4 after failing to procure a doctor for the spectators at the Botshabelo Stadium on March 03, 2013, in the fixture against Vasco da Gama.

After declining to pay an admission of guilt fine of R5 000, Roses appeared before the DC and were fined R5 000. In addition, the club were ordered to pay all the costs of the DC.

Witbank Spurs faced three separate charges for contravening Rule 8.9.4. The club allegedly failed to procure the services of a spectator doctor at the Puma Stadium on March 09, 2013, in their game against Jomo Cosmos.

The club again failed to procure the services of a spectator doctor in their fixture against Milano United on March 03 and against Vasco, in a similar offense, on March 16, both at the Puma Stadium.

Spurs pleaded guilty to two charges and were fined R5 000 for each charge. On the third offence, the club was fined R5 000 and ordered to pay the costs of the hearing.
