- Cape Town City were charged by the Premier Soccer League over matters raised from a fixture last year
- Cape Town City pleaded guilty to the charges brought against them by the Premier Soccer League's disciplinary committee
- New Premier League Soccer's prosecutor Zola Majavu confirmed that Cape Town City would receive the outcome of the hearing next week
Cape Town City will have to wait one more week to find out their punishment after pleading guilty to the charges brought before them by the Premier Soccer Leagues' disciplinary committee.
Cape Town City were charged over a matter that stemmed from a game during last year.
The charges were laid against Cape Town City after they failed to produce players' cards game before Maritzburg United, Soccer Laduma reported. Cape Town City explained at that stage that their team manager's vehicle was broken into before the game. As a result, his bag with his team sheets and players' card was stolen.
Premier Soccer League Prosecutor Zola Majavu confirmed that the matter was then referred to the PSL's disciplinary committee but Cape Town City pleaded guilty to the charges, The South African confirmed.
“I can confirm that Cape Town City football was duly charged and appeared before the DC earlier today (Wednesday). The charges emanated from a protest which was lodged by Maritzburg United Football Club, in relation to a fixture that was played in the absence of the responded club being in possession of the requisite players cards.
The matter proceeded today and was almost finalised. The responded club, which is Cape Town City, pleaded guilty as charged and were duly convicted. Submissions with regard to the appropriate sanction were also made by all relevant parties and in that regard, the final sanction is reserved by the disciplinary committee, he said.
"The indication is that a sanction would be received by no later than next week Tuesday. As soon as it’s available, I will communicate it accordingly,” Majavu added.
PSL drops the hammer down on Kaizer Chiefs, charges club for not honouring fixtures
New Premier Soccer League prosecutor Zola Majavu has wasted no time in attending to pressing legal matters, charging Kaizer Chiefs for not honouring two fixtures last month, Sports Brief earlier reported.
The Amakhosi failed to pitch up for clashes against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows because of a Covid-19 outbreak at the club which laid 36 players and staff low. As a result, they had requested these and other fixtures to be postponed by the PSL, which the governing body declined.
When the Premier Soccer League prosecutor Zola Majavu took over the job he could not provide a timeline for when the matter would be resolved, but then took action almost immediately. KickOff reported that the league would now charge Chiefs for their actions in the coming days.
