PSL, Downs discuss crowd violence
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) and Mamelodi Sundowns met on Tuesday to discuss the recent scenes of crowd violence at some of Sundowns games.
The PSL has expressed concern about the behaviour of football fans at fixtures in the last couple of weeks. Subsequently, the PSL appointed an internal security task team to look into the matter and come up with means to deal with crowd violence.
During the meeting both parties agreed that there is a need to act swiftly in order to curb the behaviour of a faction of their supporters.
Sundowns have requested assistance from the PSL to bring the culprits to book. The club revealed that they intend pursuing criminal charges.
PSL acting CEO, Professor Ronnie Schloss said: “The recent scenes at our stadiums have been of great concern to us. We have put together an internal team that will investigate the disturbing scenes.”
Sundowns senior legal manager, Yogesh Singh said: “We need to take steps to avoid a repeat of what happened this past weekend. It’s not in the interest of Sundowns, the PSL, nor football at large.”
