Bosso could play behind closed doors



Highlanders could be forced to play their home matches behind closed doors following violent acts by their fans at Maglas Stadium on Good Friday.

Bosso fans turned riotous in the first half of their league match against Shabanie Mine after referee Makonese Masakadza turned down a penalty appeal from Highlanders players.

This caused a 40-minute stoppage as police battled to contain the disturbances. Zimbabwe Football Association vice president Ndumiso Gumede last year gave Highlanders a stern warning over violence and threatened that if it continues, the club would play breakfast matches behind closed doors.

This would be the first time in Zimbabwe for a club to play under such an arrangement. The Bulawayo giants, who have a history of violence, are also already sitting on a final warning from the Premier Soccer League.

PSL chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele said they will act on the issue as soon as they receive reports from the referee, match commissioner and police.

“We are yet to be furnished with the referee’s, police and match commissioner’s reports. We will act according to what would be contained on those reports. For now we will not say anything,” Ndebele said.

This is the second time this year that Highlanders supporters have become militant. They attacked some Dynamos fans soon after the first leg of the Bob 89 Super Cup match in Bulawayo in February, leaving some seeking medical attention.
