Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will be one of seven clubs to appear before the Premier Soccer League's Disciplinary Committee for causing the match against Free State Stars in February to start late.

The other sides charged by the PSL's DC include Ea Lla Koto, Magesi FC, Baroka, Bloemfontein Celtic, Highlands Park and Jomo Cosmos.

Chiefs allegedly left the dressing room late which caused the delay in the kick-off against Stars.

Meanwhile, the National First Division's Magesi face a charge of not fielding two U23 players in their squad against Stellenbosch FC in February.

In their match against Platinum Stars, Bakgaga's goalkeepers did not wear the correct colour of kit as stipulated by match officials. Siwelele breached a mandatory compliance meeting when club officials failed to turn up to a pre-match meeting against Buya Msuthu in March.

In addition, the Lions of the North were sanctioned after they failed to submit a starting line-up to the match commissioner ahead of their game against Free State Stars on 5 March. 

Furthermore, the NFD's Cosmos fielded two players with the numbers 92 and 86 against Thanda Royal Zulu on 15 February. This is a violation as only numbers one to 50 are allowed. The hearing will take place for all of the sides involved on 4 April.
