The Premier Soccer League has fined Cape Town City FC R100 000 for failing to produce players' registration cards for the DStv Premiership match against Maritzburg United in December.

During Cape Town City's match against Maritzburg United 7 December, the home side played without the players' registration cards.

Maritzburg protested prior to kick-off that evening, and the Mother City outfit has duly been found guilty and fined by the PSL.

The PSL's prosecutor, Advocate Zola Majavu confirmed the R100 000 fine handed down to Cape Town City.

"I hereby provide the update as promised last week in respect of the protest lodged by Maritzburg United Football Club against Cape Town City Football Club,” said Majavu.

"The sanction as determined by the disciplinary committee of the league is as follows: The respondent which is Cape Town City Football Club is fined R100 000, half of which is suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that during the period of suspension the said club is not found guilty of the same offence and the balance of the 50% is payable within 30 days from today, being the date of the ruling.

"The PSL is to return the protest fee to the protesting club which is Maritzburg United. Cape Town City is ordered to pay the costs of the DC hearing to the PSL.

"Cape Town City is further ordered to pay the costs of Maritzburg United on an attorney and own client Scale for the hearing of 12 January only," Majavu added.
