The PSL disciplinary committee fined Kaizer Chiefs for failing to play matches against Cape Town and the Golden Arrows.
Chiefs were unable to honor the matches in December due to the Covid-19 outbreak at their Naturen base.
This has led to controversy between PSL and Amakhosi over whether to play games that the club has won in the arbitration proceedings of the SA Football Association.
PSL DC prosecutor Zola Majavu confirmed on Tuesday that the Chiefs were fined after their appearance in the PSL DC.
“I can confirm that this morning the Kaizer Chiefs football club appeared before the PSL DC to respond to allegations of misconduct due to their failure to play two matches in December against Covid.
“It was against Cape Town as well as FC Lamontville Golden Arrows. This issue was postponed until the end of the arbitration, to which the case was transferred to Kaizer Chiefs.
After the arbitrator ruled in their favor, I stopped the prosecution.
“Later, the league’s executive committee made that decision for revision, and it succeeded last week, May 10, which paved the way for me to be accused of misconduct.
“This particular issue has been credited for consideration today, and I am pleased to inform you that the case has indeed been properly completed on the following basis:
“Kaizer Chiefs Football Club pleaded guilty and I accepted the statement, which led to DC returning the conviction. We immediately proceeded to make submissions regarding aggravation and mitigation of punishment, where after PSL DC ruled the following regarding sanction.
1.1 Kaiser Chiefs has been fined Rs 200,000, of which 50% have been suspended for 12 months, provided that they are not found guilty of the same offense within the suspension period. In fact, they have to pay 100,000 rubles.
1.2 In addition, they were ordered to pay the costs of the meetings, which will be administratively calculated by the league and after their completion will be transferred to Kaizer Chiefs for further payment. Explained Majawa.
