PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu said that Kaizer Chiefs had been charged for failing to honor two DSTV Premiership dates in December and set a hearing date.
Amakhosi requested a postponement of their PSL fixtures in early December owing to a significant Covid-19 epidemic at the Village, which resulted in over 30 squad members testing positive.
Chiefs acknowledged that they would be unable to fulfill matches against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows, but the Premier Soccer League later confirmed that Amakhosi’s plea was denied.
Majavu, who was appointed by the Premier Soccer League until the end of the season, announced that the Soweto giants have been accused and will learn their fate on January 21. There is a good likelihood that City and Arrows will be awarded the three points.

“I can also confirm that Kaizer Chiefs football club has also been charged in relation with their non-fulfillment of the two fixtures as a result of that most of their players had tested positive.
“That case has been enrolled for hearing on 21 January at 18:00. As soon as these matters have been finalized, I will once again communicate the outcomes thereof – alternatively, if there are any developments about these matters, I will similarly communicate.”
