Still no luck for Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night lost their appeal at a South African Football Association (Safa) hearing against the R145 000 fine and effective two-game ban on spectators attending two of their home games.

The South African Broadcasting Corporation reported on Wednesday that Chiefs are now considering an arbitration route. Safa’s appeal board confirmed the decision taken by the Premier Soccer League’s disciplinary committee last month.

Chiefs were handed stiff penalties after supporters caused extensive damage at the FNB Stadium when their side lost to Bloemfontein Celtic. Chiefs will have to pay the fine with immediate effect.

Effectively, Amakhosi will only play one game behind closed doors. If such behaviour is repeated, two other matches will carry the same penalty.

Chiefs will play Black Leopards next Wednesday in an empty stadium.—Sapa
