Amakhosi were handed the ban on their 'home' fixtures in
KwaZulu-Natal as a result of fan violence at the Moses Mabhida Stadium
during their Nedbank Cup semi-final defeat to Free State Stars last
The third match of the ban is suspended for a period of 24 months, provided they do not repeat the offence.
"We are waiting for the PSL to come back us," Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung told Independent Media.
"For now, we can't be encouraging fans to buy tickets for our clash
against Polokwane City. There's an appeal process and we have to wait
for that process to take place."
The Glamour Boys are scheduled to face Rise and Shine at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on October 6.
Prior to Motaung's revelation, stadium manager Vusi Mazibuko had urged supporters to buy tickets for the Absa Premiership encounter.
"Tickets for that game are on sale. We are still discussing the PSL
decision with Chiefs. We have the game on October 6 and people can buy
tickets," Mazibuko said.
