Cape Town - The PSL DC on Friday found Bloemfontein Celtic guilty of failing to provide adequate security during their Absa Premiership clash against Cape Town City with the visitors awarded the points after the match was abandoned due to fans protesting.

The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee last night found Bloemfontein Celtic FC guilty on charges of failing to provide adequate security and causing the abandonment of the Absa Premiership fixture against Cape Town City on April 14.

The DC ordered that the match be forfeited to Cape Town City FC with a 3-0 scoreline. In addition, Bloemfontein Celtic’s remaining two home matches are to be played outside of the Free State Province at venues to be determined by the League.
