Orlando Pirates have officially been charged by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) over the controversial incident involving TS Galaxy chairman Tim Sukazi.
Last month, Sukazi was involved in a fracas outside Orlando Stadium as he was denied entry despite his claims of being in possession of an ‘all access’ accreditation.
Newly appointed PSL prosecutor, Advocate Zola Majavu confirmed on Thursday that Pirates have been charged, with the matter set to be heard next week.
“Orlando Pirates Football Club was charged yesterday and the matter has been enrolled for hearing at 14h00, next week 26 January,” he said in an official statement.
“This was in relation to the misconduct arising from the chairman of TS Galaxy being denied entry into the stadium. The charges relate to the incident – that case will proceed next week Wednesday.
“When it is finalised, I will come back and provide a further update of the outcome on the DC hearing.”
The incident also saw their media officer Thandi Merafe allegedly charged for assault in an incident with the Rockets media officer Minenhle Mkhize – pending the outcome of the court hearing in Soweto.
