The Premier Soccer League has rescheduled Kaizer Chiefs' disciplinary hearing for the fan rampage at Moses Mabhida Stadium from Thursday to May 9.
Amakhosi are in hot water after a horde of their supporters attacked security guards, ripped out and torched seats, and smashed broadcasting equipment as well some cars in the parking lot after the team lost 2-0 to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on April 21.
Besides injuring 18 people, R2.6 million worth of damage was done by the mob at the venue that was built ahead of the 2010 World Cup.
The PSL released a statement, which reads: 'The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee (DC) has rescheduled Kaizer Chief’s appearance in front of the DC. Kaizer Chiefs were initially scheduled to appear on 03 May 2018.
'The hearing has now been moved to 09 May 2018 at 18h00.
'Kaizer Chiefs are facing charges of bringing the League into disrepute and misconduct. This follows events of 21 April 2018 during the 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.'
