Zimbabwe Soccer Supporters Urge League To Censure Fan Violence

The head of the Zimbabwe Soccer Supporters Association said Friday that the organization deplores violence by sports fans and urged officials of the Premier Soccer League to impose hefty penalties on those who step out of line.

The PSL disciplinary committee is to hand down a judgment Saturday concerning the match abandoned August 5 between Highlanders and Caps United in Harare due to rowdy behavior by Caps fans after Highlanders were awarded a penalty kick.

The two teams were tied 1-1 when the game was halted with minutes left.

Soccer Supporters Association Chairman Eddie Mboma Nyatanga told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that he hope the PSL ruling will be tough enough to deter other fans from engaging in violence.
