The PSL are set to review the use of the plastic trumpet in South African soccer matches following an on-pitch incident in which a referee was struck by an irate fan
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has vowed to look into the use of the vuvuzela in stadiums following two separate incidents that occurred at the Moses Mabhida Stadium over a week ago.
PSL General Manager Derek Blackensee has told Reuters they have not considered banning the plastic trumpet as yet, but they could ban it if they consider it to be a harmful instrument.
“Our rules ban all dangerous weapons from matches. If the vuvuzela is to become dangerous then we will look into this,” said Blackensee.
Last weekend, referee Lwandile Mfiki was hit with a vuvuzela by an angry fan who was apparently protesting a red card given to Reneilwe Letsholonyane during a league match between Golden Arrows and Kaizer Chiefs at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Pirates coach Roger De Sa had to be escorted to the dressing room a few days earlier, after a group of frustrated supporters threw objects including the vuvuzelas at him following their 1-1 draw against AmaZulu.
