Amakhosi were ordered to pay R50 000 immediately while R200 000 was suspended for 24 months provided they are not found guilty of a similar offence

Kaizer Chiefs have been fined a quarter of a million Rand on charges of spectator misbehaviour two weeks ago. 

However, R200 000.00 has been suspended for 24 months provided that the club isn't found guilty of a similar offence during that period. 

Chiefs players, officials and coach Steve Komphela had to be escorted into the tunel in the aftermath of their 3-0 loss to Chippa United at the FNB Stadium on April 7, 2018. 

A section of angry supporters threw objects at the players and Komphela, before taking a swipe at football manager Bobby Motaung in the VIP suites. 

According to the PSL DC, Amakhosi failed to provide adequate security on the day to prevent those ugly scenes from happening. 

The PSL released the following statement:

The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has handed down its sanctions against Kaizer Chiefs FC on charges of spectator misbehaviour resulting from the club’s failure to provide adequate security.
