Highlanders officially charged for fans behaviour

Highlanders fans are set to cost the club after the violence that followed the game against Chicken with the PSL indicating it has now received official reports from the match and will now charge the club.

Highlanders are already struggling financially and another fine will likely add more woes to the club.

Part of a statement from the PSL read:

The Premier Soccer League strongly condemns the violence and hooliganism that took place after the PSL match between Highlanders and Chicken Inn played at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday 14 August 2016.

Violence and hooliganism have not place in football. Football fans should enjoy the game in a peaceful environment.

Violence and hooliganism at football matches may fracture working relationships within and among football stakeholders.

Meanwhile the PSL has received match reports from both the referee and match commissioner. We will proceed and charge Highlanders FC for the behaviours of their fans. The club will be charged in terms of Order 31.1.13 of the PSL Rules and Regulations.
