PSL confirm Kaizer Chiefs charged


The PSL has confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs have been charged for failing to honour two DStv Premiership fixtures, with the Soweto giants facing a stern punishment and possible points deduction.

Chiefs had requested the postponement of the club's December fixtures after a debilitating Covid-19 outbreak which resulted in 36 positive cases.

The Soweto giants then communicated that it was unable to honour their two fixtures at home to Cape Town City before an away clash to Golden Arrows.
