The PSL DC found Kaizer Chiefs guilty and ordered that they must play three matches behind closed doors in KwaZulu-Natal with the implementation of one (of the three matches) match suspended for a period of 24 months provided Kaizer Chiefs is not found guilty of a similar offence.

Kaizer Chiefs has already played one of the two matches behind closed doors at the Moses Mabhida Stadium against Polokwane City on October 6.

"Having considered submissions by both Chiefs as well as the PSL, the Appeal Committee noted that the unacceptable behaviour by Kaizer Chiefs supporters on the day was indeed extreme and warranted the sanction imposed by the PSL Disciplinary Committee," A PSL statement said.

Kaizer Chiefs were ordered to pay the costs of the appeal.
