Highlanders To Appear Before PSL Disciplinary Committee

Highlanders To Appear Before PSL Disciplinary Committee

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has summoned Highlanders to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee following acts of crowd trouble that took place at Mandava Stadium on Saturday 23 April this year.

A PSL match between FC Platinum and Highlanders was abandoned in the 82nd minute due to crowd trouble.

Highlanders fans stormed the pitch and confronted the referee after he had awarded FC Platinum a penalty with the scoreline 1-1.

In a statement on Monday evening, the PSL said that Highlanders is being charged for breaching the PSL rules and regulations. Part of the statement read:

In terms of Order 31 of the PSL Rules and Regulations, it is an act of misconduct on the part of the club where;

31.1.13 Its supporters misbehave in any manner whatsoever, inside or outside a ground before, during and after a match, no matter on which ground the match is played.

Without derogating from the generality of what constitutes misbehaviour on the part of supporters, the following are specifically declared to be acts of misbehaviour:-

31.1.13.1 Invasion or attempted invasion of the field of play, save for reasons of crowd safety.

31.1.13.2 Causing the abandonment or attempting to cause abandonment of a match

31.1.13.3 Throwing or attempting to throw missiles, bottles, and other objects, whether potentially harmful or dangerous or not, onto the pitch, or at any person.

31.1.13.8 Maliciously damaging or attempting to damage any property on the ground

The disciplinary proceedings shall take place on Tuesday 10 May 2022 at the PSL offices.

Highlanders deserve punishment. Even the executive wasn't remorseful. Instead they blamed ZRP for mismanaging riot control as if ZRP had started the riots

WHY is it when it's Highlanders you're quick to summon them to Harare???
Other teams are let go Scot Free the whole season ,zvimwe hatizonzwi kuti zvakaperera kupi?
If the PSL says they have received numerous complains about match officiating ,why didn't they address is as a matter of urgency than to wait for disturbances, it was always leading to violence , you should also tell us what action you take against those match officials ?

Also the Bulawayo chiefs/ dynamos game must have been looked @ before the mandava incident

Since fans are not allowed into the pitch "before, during n after the match" I think the Hwahwa/ dynamos game should also be summoned to hearing..

31.1.13.3 So if throwing of missiles whether harmful of potentially harmful is not allowed, so why was Dynamos not charged when their supporters threw some water bottles on the pitch in their Independence cup match against Highlanders? Those rules only apply where Highlanders is involved. I will want to know the course of action which you (PSL) are going to take against that **** referee. **** referee who doesn't think.
