1524398210_866ee

Soccer fans dressed in Chiefs regalia were seen vandalising parts of the stadium and storming onto the pitch after the team lost 2-0 to Free State Stars on Saturday. The rioters are believed to have caused up to 5 million Rand (GBP293,000) in damages to cameras and sound equipment.

Sport and Recreation Minister Toko Xasa condemned the violence.

"Such behaviour goes against the very ethos of what Amakhosi stands for, which is love and peace".

Premier Soccer League chairperson Irvin Khoza has apologised for the chaos that marred a game between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Steve Komphela swiftly resigned as Glamour Boys coach, having been on the receiving end of increasingly hostile abuse from supporters demanding his exit prior to the unsavoury episode.

"Our investigators are working around the clock to identify and bring the perpetrators of the violence to book", he said.


One of the men accused of pitch invasion and malicious damage to property, Phelelani Jojisa, is expected to appear at the Durban Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

"The league is extremely shocked at the violence that took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night. Hooliganism and thuggery of this nature has no place in football and acts of violence perpetrated by individuals. can not be tolerated", the league said.

Meanwhile political parties called for swift intervention from Parliament.

"The PSL must provide concrete plans on interventions they will be implementing to stop violence at football matches and ensure safety of spectators and officials".

R200 000.00 of the fine was suspended for 24 months on condition that the club are not found guilty of a similar offence during that period, according to the PSL's ruling.
