PSL chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele confirmed the summoning of the two teams who are likely to face stiff penalties as PSL take a hard stance against hooliganism at football matches.

“I can confirm that Highlanders and Caps have been summoned to appear before the PSL disciplinary committee, but from where I am I cannot confirm the dates. Highlanders were summoned for the skirmishes after the ZPC Kariba match at Hartsfield and Caps United for the incidences after their encounter with How Mine in Harare,” he said from Chinhoyi where is on the Africa Union Region Five Games duty.

Bosso fans threw missiles onto the pitch following their 1-3 defeat to ZPC Kariba on September 28, a match which led to the departure of head coach Kelvin Kaindu.

They were disgruntled by the team’s performance as this was their second loss in a row following their defeat 0-1 at Harare City the previous week.

Following the skirmishes Kaindu resigned from the club as the Bosso executive expressed concern over his safety saying they were unable to protect him.

Kaindu formally part ways with Bosso last Friday leaving assistant coach Mark Mathe to take over the hot seat.

If fined, this would be the second time they will be fined following bad behaviour from supporters against How Mine and Dynamos where they threw missiles. Highlanders were fined $2 000 for both incidents which happened at Barbourfields Stadium.

This would also be Caps United’s second time to be summoned after leftback Hardlife Zvirekwi sprinkled urine on the Buffaloes technical bench during their match on April 20.

The club was fined $1 750 while Zvirekwi was slapped with a $250 fine. They were again fined recently for using an undesignated entry point against Hwange and would have to pay the PSL $750.

Last year Dynamos, Highlanders and Caps United were fined the most with $64 000, $26 550 and $6 000 respectively, making the big three the most ill-disciplined teams in Zimbabwe while FC Platinum is the most behaved.

However, the fines seem not to have deterred the supporters who continue to disrupt matches despite the fact most of them would be beamed live on SuperSport for the whole world to see.
