Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League has charged Absa Premiership Bidvest Wits with bringing the League into disrepute.

The following matters will appear before the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee this week:


The Premier Soccer League has charged Wits and club Chief Executive Officer Jose Ferreira and Robyn Johannes with bringing the League into disrepute and making improper statements regarding a match official (Victor Gomes) during their Absa Premiership fixture against Kaizer Chiefs at Bidvest Stadium on January 9.

They will appear on Thursday evening, February 7.


Black Leopards and coach Dylan Kerr have been charged with misconduct arising from abusive and insulting utterances towards a Match official (referee) and contemptuous, discriminatory and disparaging remarks to the Match Commissioner during their Absa Premiership fixture against Baroka FC on 06 January 2019.

They will appear on Thursday evening, February 7.


Mamelodi Sundowns have been charged with contravening Rule 16.3.2 of the NSL Handbook after they allegedly fielded an ineligible player, Wayne Arendse, against Bidvest Wits during their Absa Premiership fixture on 07 October 2018.

They will appear on Wednesday, February 6.


Meanwhile, the long out-standing charges against current Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp (which arose during his tenure of coach of Maritzburg United FC) is postponed to February 14 due to his current club’s rescheduled fixtures.

The charges arose from acts of alleged misconduct against Middendorp which took place shortly before his departure from Maritzburg United to coach in the Far East early in 2017. Middendorp is alleged to have made improper statements concerning the acting CEO of the PSL and the appointment of Match referees to Maritzburg United FC matches
