HIGHLANDERS FC has been summoned to a disciplinary hearing by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to answer to charges of bringing the game of football into disrepute following crowd trouble at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

The violence led to the abandonment of the tempestuous league match against old foes Dynamos.

In a statement issued Monday, the PSL said it had ordered the Bulawayo giants to appear before a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, May 23 next week.

The match was abandoned after 42 minutes as Highlanders fans protested Dynamos’ equaliser scored by Cameroonian Christian Ntouba who cancelled out an earlier strike by Rahman Kutsanzira.

They charged that he was in an offside position when he scored the goal that had deflected off a Highlanders player.

The statement from the PSL reads: “The Premier Soccer League has summoned Highlanders FC to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee following incidents of hooliganism that occurred at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday 14 May 2017 at a Castle Lager PSL match between Highlanders FC and Dynamos FC resulting in the abandonment of the match. Highlanders FC have been charged for breaching the Premier Soccer League Rules and Regulations….”

The PSL said it does not condone acts of violence and hooliganism in football and urged club leaders to capacitate their security officials and educate their fans so as to eradicate violence from our football.
