AmaZulu FC has been slapped with a hefty fine by the PSL over unruly fans.
In a game at the King Zwelithini Stadium last season against Mamelodi Sundowns, fans hurled missiles onto the pitch after the referee’s assistant allowed for Sundowns’ third goal on the night despite, appeals for off-side.
The PSL initially charged AmaZulu for exceeding the stadium capacity, and although Usuthu was acquitted for that charge, the team will have to pay a substantial amount of money over their other charges, which include “failing to provide adequate security personnel”.
A statement from the PSL on Wednesday, 12 September 2018 reads as follows: “The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has found AmaZulu FC guilty and fined the club R640 000.00 of which R320 000.00 was suspended for a period of 24 months provided they are not found guilty of similar offences.”
“AmaZulu were charged for spectator misbehaviour and failure to provide adequate security during their Absa Premiership fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns on 2 March 2018 at King Zwelithini Stadium.”
Usuthu has had a good start to the 2018/19 season, winning two of its opening four games, but will face a tough task when it hosts a motivated Sundowns outfit at the King Zwelithini Stadium on 16 September 2018.
