Kaizer Chiefs have announced that they will open criminal charges against some of their supporters who have been involved in public violence and malicious damage to property at recent matches.
Here are are some of the points to take from the statement:
The Club has shared pictures and video footage with the law enforcement agencies and expects arrests soon.
The Club has also incurred substantial and unnecessary fines as a result of these incidents, which have tarnished its reputation and deprived its loyal fans from attending its next match against Cape Town Spurs on 8 November 2023.
The match at FNB stadium will be played behind closed doors, as per the Premier Soccer League’s (PSL) decision to ban fans from the fixture following unacceptable behaviour by some of the supporters at the games at Mbombela Stadium against TS Galaxy, Peter Mokaba stadium against SuperSport United and FNB Stadium against AmaZulu.
Club Appeals To Supporters To Uphold Love And Peace
Chiefs have expressed their regret over the situation and appealed to their supporters to conduct themselves like true Amakhosi Faithful and help ensure safety of all other supporters in the stadium around the country.
The Club stands for Love & Peace and prides itself on upholding the spirit of sportsmanship, both in victory and defeat.
The Club has also thanked its stakeholders who have assisted in identifying the perpetrators and asked anyone who has more information about these incidents and culprits to contact the Club’s security cluster or email email@example.com.
