The PSL has issued a statement on the match between Nichrut and CAPS United which was marred by chaos after fans of both sides clashed.

The encounter was played at Ascot Stadium on Saturday.

The mayhem started when CAPS took the lead after the home team had grabbed a 3-1 advantage. Dejected Nichrut supporters began to attack the visiting fans, and the play had to be stopped for 16 minutes.

The CAPS United followers had to be escorted by the police out of the stadium.

Here is a statement by PSL:

The Premier Soccer League condemns acts of violence and hooliganism that took place during a match between Nichrut FC and Caps United FC played at Ascot Stadium on Saturday 28 April 2018.

The PSL is awaiting official match reports before deciding on the disciplinary action.

The PSL wishes to remind football fans that they should conduct themselves in a sporting manner. There is no room for violence and hooliganism in football. Further, we would like to assure our stakeholders that we will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible are brought to book.

The League is also concerned about the reports of assault of one of the journalists covering a PSL match between Ngezi Platinum Stars FC and Highlanders FC by the police at Baobab Stadium on Saturday 28 April 2018.

We urge the authorities to allow our media partners to carry out their duties without harassment.
