THE Premier Soccer League (PSL) board of governors on Wednesday announced they reduced fines imposed on clubs last year by 75%.

This according to PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele represents a deduction from US$8000 which was the highest fine last year to US$2000 which will be the highest this season.

The most common offence was failure by a club to exercise control over its supporters before, during and after the match.

Ndebele said the board of governors resolved to reduce the fines after clubs complained that the fines were too high as they left them with virtually nothing in their coffers.

Ndebele however, said the clubs in turn undertook to do some educational campaigns with their fans to curb violence before, during and after matches.

"The Board of Governors of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) resolved to reduce last season's standing orders fines by 75%,” he said.

“The clubs felt the fines were too high so the board made a decision to reduce them by 75%.

“The clubs also made a commitment to go to their fans for educational campaigns against violence before, during and after matches."

Last season, reigning champions Dynamos was the most affected club with the PSL withholding their US$70,000 prize money after winning the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title in a bid to have them pay the fines mostly pitch invasion.

A statement from the PSL reads: "The Board of Governors of the Premier Soccer League resolved to impose sanctions for the offences listed here-under.

“The sanctions will be imposed immediately after the League has received reports from match commissioners and or referees.”
