By: Khanyisani Dlomo
Two Soweto giants and four first division clubs will appear before Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee, the PSL said in a statement on Tuesday.
Kaizer Chiefs was charged with contravening rule 10.5 after they failed to allow the opposition team, Polokwane City FC access to their changing room. The incident happened at least four hours before the kick-off time in their Nedbank Cup clash at Moses Mabhida Stadium earlier in March. They only allowed them access just an one hour before the kick off time. Amakhosi will appear before the committee on the 10th of April.
Orlando Pirates are set to hear their charge tomorrow after failing to change to white shorts in order to avoid clash of colours against their rivals Chiefs at FNB Stadium last month. They were charged with contravening rule 12.2 and 12.3.
The first division side, Dynamos was charged with contravening the kit manual after one of its players wore a jersey with a number different to the one displayed on his shorts during their clash against Roses United in Giyani Stadium. The date for the hearing is yet to be set.
Sivutsa Stars are in hot water as they face to charges, after they failed to procure a doctor for the spectators in a game against Thanda Royal Zulu in November last year. They are also charged for failure to arrive in the change rooms at the stipulated time (60 minutes before the kick-off) at the same game. This delayed the game kick off by 10 minutes. They have not yet pleaded guilty.
Witbank Spurs suffer the same fate as Sivusta. On three separate games against Jomo Cosmos, Milano United and Vasco Da Gama last month, they failed to procure a doctor for the spectators. They pleaded guilty and were charged R50 000 for each offence.
Roses United case will proceed this month. They were charged for the same offence as of Spurs against Vasco Da Gama earlier last month.
