Kaizer Chiefs have officially been charged by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) with their date to appear before the Disciplinary Committee (DC) now set.
In a tumultuous month of December which saw Chiefs suffer a Covid-19 outbreak and forced them to temporarily close doors at Naturena Village – they failed to honour fixtures against Cape Town City (H) and Golden Arrows (A).
While the PSL initially dragged their feet over their request for postponing the fixtures – with the official rules stating Covid-19 will not be used as a basis to reschedule a fixture, they were denied by the league.
However, Amakhosi have since appealed the decision, which effectively would hand City and Arrows walkover results.
Newly appointed PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu has since confirmed that Chiefs have been charged for failing to honour the games – and will appear before the DC later this month.
“Kaizer Chiefs Football Club have been charged in relation with their non-fulfilment of their two fixtures as a result of the allegations that most of their players had tested positive [for Covid-19],” he said.
“That case has also been enrolled for hearing on the 21st of January at 16h00.”
