PSL DC finds Celtic guilty, points given to City

The Premier Soccer League' Disciplinary Committee has punished Bloemfontein Celtic for March’s fan pitch invasion which included clashes with the police.

Punya Sele Sele supporters charged onto the pitch at the Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium in on April 14, forcing the referee to abandon the match over fears for player and spectator safety.

The PSL now has given a judgment on the incident, confirming that Celtic forfeit the game.

"The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee last night found Bloemfontein Celtic FC guilty on charges of failing to provide adequate security and causing the abandonment of the Absa Premiership fixture against Cape Town City on 14 April 2019," read a statement from the League this morning.

"The DC ordered that the match be forfeited to Cape Town City FC with a 3-0 score. In addition, Bloemfontein Celtic’s remaining two home matches are to be played outside of the Free State Province at venues to be determined by the League,” concluded the PSL.

Moving on, Celtic welcome Kaizer Chiefs to the same stadium tomorrow afternoon.
