PSL, SAPS to fight football hooliganism

The Premier Soccer League and South African Police Services meet over football hooliganism

Posted: 30 November 2012 Time: 06:58 am

The Premier Soccer League held a successful three-hour meeting with high ranking members of the South African Police Services to address hooliganism in football.

The meeting was attended by the PSL Acting CEO, Cambridge Mokanyane, PSL GM of Football, Derek Blanckensee, PSL GM of Safety and Security Phillip Masimong.

During the three-hour meeting, a number of matters were discussed by the two parties and chief amongst those was the spate of hooliganism by a faction of supporters at football matches, especially Mamelodi Sundowns fans, two months ago.

After the discussions, Mokanyane said the meeting was the first major step towards ensuring that the PSL and the SAPS work hand in glove to ensure that football spectators who attend PSL matches feel safe.

Mokanyane says: "We had a very productive operational meeting with the leadership of the SAPS. We really wanted to reinforce the commitment between the PSL and SAPS on curbing spectator misbehaviour.

"SAPS are a very important stakeholder to the PSL. We have adopted a zero tolerance towards hooliganism."

I agree with you Prof_Makaveli, they should have posted those ruthless Chimpanzees when they were throwing cabbages in the field.

As long as their meetings does not involve football fans (i.e through club member branches) they should just consider the 3 hours they spent speaking about football fans a waste of time... the PSL with Dr. Khoza at the helm thinks it is a spider with long legs, and has the ability to trap problems as they appear... their methods are ancient...

The logic is that if club branches are involved and work closely with authorities, the misbehaviours in stadiums may be reduced!
