The Premier Soccer League club, Bloemfontein Celtic, will be appearing before the leagues Disciplinary Committee following the match against Cape Town City FC at the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium which was called off.

Pitch invasions by Celtic fans and unrest led to the officials deeming unsafe for the players to return to the field of play, and the game was called.

Supporters of Phunya Sele Sele were protesting due to the uncertainty of the sale of the cash-strapped club.

Despite having put the club up for the sale some time game, the current chairman, Max Tshabalala, is refusing to hand over the necessary documentation needed for the transfer of ownership.

The Free State businesswoman, Sinky Lashebane, and a consortium are the potential and preferred buyers of the club.

The acts of hooliganism lead to the police arresting 10 Celtic supporters, who will all appear in court.

Via a brief statement, the league indicated that on 25 April, Celtic will have to answer for the inadequate security at the match.

“The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has charged Bloemfontein Celtic following acts of hooliganism which resulted in their fixture against Cape Town City yesterday (Sunday) being abandoned.

“Bloemfontein Celtic has been charged with failure to provide adequate security for the match and bringing the League, sponsors Absa, SAFA, CAF, and FIFA into disrepute.

“They will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on 25 April 2019.”

The PSL is yet to announce a date for the rematch between Celtic and Cape Town City FC.
