The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has fined both SuperSport United and TP Mazembe for a pitch invasion incident which took place in the second leg of the 23017 Caf Confederation Cup final last weekend.  

In a statement released by Caf, Matsatsantsa have been ordered to pay over R200 000 for their failure to provide sufficient security which saw hundreds of fans make their way onto the pitch soon after the final whistle in Tshwane.

TP Mazembe were fined just less than R70 000 for the unruly behaviour of their fans. 

Below is the official statement released by Caf on Tuesday. 

The CAF Disciplinary Board has sanctioned TP Mazeme and Supersport United for pitch invasion by supporters of the two clubs during the second leg of the final of the Total CAF Confederation Cup played on Saturday, 25 November 2017 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria.

In pursuant to Articles 83 and 151 of the CAF Disciplinary Code, Supersport has been fined 15,000 US Dollars for the security flaw in the organization of the match. The South African club has also been cautioned against a repeat of such incident, or risk playing their games behind closed doors.

On the part of TP Mazembe, they were imposed with a fine of 5,000 US Dollars for the behaviour of their fans, which is a violation of Articles 82 and 83 of the CAF Disciplinary Code.

Mazembe retained the title won last year 2-1 on aggregate after a holding Supersport to a barren draw in the return leg.
