thumbnail Hello,

The Premier Soccer League’s disciplinary committee sat down to decide on a sanction for Kaizer Chiefs following their Absa Premiership match against Orlando Pirates on 31 October 2009.

Kaizer Chiefs were charged with delaying the kick-off, failure to obey the match officials’ directive to change the goalkeeper’s kit and to comply with the phone and pre-match meeting decisions.

The fine imposed by PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu is R150,000, of which R100,000 is suspended on condition that a similar offence does not occur in the next 12 months, according to a PSL press release.

The R50,000 is payable after seven days as the club has this time to appeal against the sentence.

However, at the Telkom Charity Cup earlier this year (August 1) Chiefs player Lucky Khune wore a jersey that did not comply with the PSL rules. Chiefs were fined R50,000 wholly suspended on condition that it does not happen in the next year, which it did.

And together with the most recent transgression their fine comes to R100,000.  The club was also ordered to pay the costs of the two sitting which amounts to R42,000.
