Castle Lager Premiership Matchday 6 details confirmed

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has summoned CAPS United to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee to answer to three charges following the crowd trouble that marred their Castle Lager Premiership match against FC Platinum on Saturday.

The match was abandoned with only four minutes left in regulation time after CAPS United fans invaded the pitch in protest over a Ralph Kawondera “goal” had been ruled out for offside.

FC Platinum was leading 1-0 at the time the game was abandoned. The goal was scored by Juan Mutudza in the eighth minute.
