After Highlanders/Dynamos mayhem, PSL suspends matches

HARARE – The Premier Soccer League has suspended all Castle Lager PSL matches citing incidents of violence and hooliganism during topflight matches.

On Sunday, the match between Highlanders and Dynamos at Barbourfields Stadium was abandoned after supporters of the Harare team invaded the pitch and uprooted goal posts.

The Dynamos supporters also attacked match officials.

In a statement on Monday, the PSL said it strongly condemns such acts “as they can only serve to tarnish the beautiful game of football.

“We are currently engaging all key stakeholders to find lasting solutions to these challenges. We have scheduled a meeting with Security Officials including the Zimbabwe Republic Police, Club Security Officers and Marshals as well as stadium owners on Friday 20 May 2022.”

The PSL said it has requested Highlanders, Dynamos and the ZRP to furnish “us with reports detailing the events that transpired at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday 15 May 2022.”

We will take disciplinary action after receiving the said reports,” the PSL added.

“We take this opportunity to apologise to all football loving fans, our sponsors and stakeholders.

“We hope to address these challenges before resuming football matches.” – VOA/SPORTS REPORTER
