The Premier Soccer League have confirmed fresh charges against Kaizer Chiefs following this past weekend's repulsive events in Durban.
Amakhosi have been ordered to appear in front of the PSL's Disciplinary Committee just days after being found guilty of "spectator misbehaviour" for recent violence at the FNB Stadium during their defeat to Chippa United.
The new hearing will now relate to the club bringing the league into disrepute and misconduct, after further acts of violence at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, as they suffered a shock Nedbank Cup exit at the hands of Free State Stars on Saturday evening.
"The Premier Soccer League has charged Kaizer Chiefs FC with bringing the League into disrepute and misconduct," read a statement from the PSL on Monday evening.
"The charges follow Saturday (21 April 2018) night’s Nedbank Cup fixture against Free State Stars FC where supporters invaded the pitch, assaulted some supporters and security officials and damaged property at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
"Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee on 03 May 2018 at 18h00."
Chiefs were initially slapped with a R250 000 fine for the incidents after the Chippa defeat, with R200 000 thereof suspended for two years provided the events don't re-occur.
It is expected the rest of the fine will now be effected after the Moses Mabhida events, without ruling out the possibility of further sanctions being handed down over the new charges.
