Kaizer Chiefs win in an empty stadium while development coaches and support staff take on the ball boys role.
Fans Banned From FNB stadium
Kaizer Chiefs played Cape Town Spurs yesterday in a Dstv Premiership encounter in an empty FNB stadium.
This comes after the fans were banned from attending the match after PSL imposed a ban on them due to fans throwing objects into the pitch three times this season.
Development Coaches And Staff As Ball Boys
However, the empty stadium was not the only issue the club was facing during the match, as the ball boys issues were also on the card.
Amakhosi parted ways with two development players for refusal to carry out this duty and expected more to follow suit, as the club is dealing with the youngsters.
However, on the night, the club decided to use development coaches and support staff to be ball retrievers.
Kaizer Chiefs development coaches and support staff are being used as ball boys in the Cape Town Spurs game.
This comes after several Amakhosi youth players allegedly refused to be ball retrievers in the AmaZulu FC Carling Knockout Cup game.

This was a temporary solution as the club is looking for a permanent one.
