PSL warns Soweto Derby fans against supporter misbehaviour

Posted: 7 March 2013 Time: 14:12

There will be heightened security on Saturday when Kaizer Chiefs clash with Orlando Pirates before an expected sell-out crowd at Soccer City.

The PSL is leaving no stone unturned to ensure an incident-free Derby, which has traditionally been known to stir up violent emotions from the team’s passionate fans.

“In terms of security, we have finalised all the details related to the match between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates this weekend,” Connie Motshumi, PSL head of stakeholder relations and communications, tells KickOff.com.  

“The law will descend heavily on unruly and violent supporters. There will be a number of security details during the match and we would like an incident-free event,” she adds.

Since March 2011, Pirates have been fined for spectator misbehaviour on five occasions.

In the most recent incident, Pirates were fined R100,000 when a section of their supporters threw objects onto the pitch in August last year soon after the Bucs were beaten 3-0 by SuperSport United in the MTN8 semi-final second leg at Orlando Stadium.

But Kaizer Chiefs supporters also have a well documented history of violent conduct that has often got their club in hot water with the PSL.

In 2010, Amakhosi fans caused a scene after they failed to come to terms with their team’s defeat at the hands of Orlando Pirates in the semi-final of the MTN8.

Chiefs, who were fined R500,000 for that incident, threatened to backlist supporters who cause havoc during matches.

The PSL must stop beating around the bush and tell pirates fans that the security arrangements are actually meant for them. The violent history associated with chiefs is unfounded. At all times it is pirates fans pretending to be chiefs fans and causing violence in order to land chiefs in trouble.

The sitting arrangements in the stadium will spell disaster one day. There are women, children and gorilla fans who will be abused.

PSL must also ban the fan Kaizer Chiefs fans who bring radios to the stadium they listen to the game on the radio whilst watching it live at the stadiums, is that being iskhothane or what what. If you watch football at the restuarant or at a pub with them the watch while having their headfone on listening to the radio. bayafa ukuminca labantu

PSL, with all its experience of organising the league, still cannot manage the big games.

I mean if you cant manage 5000 gorillas, tell them to use Gate Z, how you going to manage the Khosi 85 000 fans who will come from every angle of FNB?
