Match-fixing case postponed

Premiership

On 17 March the PSL sent out a press release stating that eight officials and players have been charged on match-fixing allegations and the matter was going to be heard today.

But PSL media and broadcasting manager Luxolo September says the case has now been postponed.

“The case is postponed to 6 April and I have nothing to say other than that,” September tells KickOff.com.

On the PSL statement released two weeks ago the League said: “As part of the ongoing investigation into allegations of match-fixing, the Premier Soccer League has filed charges against eight football officials and football players relating to contravention of the NSL Rule 53.1, 53.2 and 53.2.10.

“The eight officials and players will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on 30 March 2016 at 18h00. Due to the sensitive nature of the allegations and investigation, the PSL is withholding the names of the individuals concerned to ensure that the process runs without prejudice to the rights of the respondents.

‘The PSL will, however, give detailed information after the PSL Disciplinary Committee has released its findings.”
