The South African Football Association (SAFA) DC has taken a number of disciplinary actions against several ABC Motsepe teams with a number of other matters pending but receiving urgent attention.
In the past few weeks, the SAFA DC found TS Galaxy guilty of assaulting match officials and were fined R10 000. They also have to write an apology to SAFA and the match officials on top of the fine.
Als Puk Tawana FC were fined R10 000 for fielding improperly registered players and were also fined R10 000.
Another club, Gawula Classic FC who failed to secure the field for their home match were fined R5000 while cases involving Premier United who failed to honour their fixture, Phiva Young Stars (abandonment of the game and assaulting match officials), Tjakastad FC (failing to provide security), Secunda Stars and FC Zone (assaulting match officials) are in the process of being finalised. All of these teams face huge fines if found guilty.
The following teams have been hauled before the DC for causing the abandonment of their respective games – Forek Academy, Garankuwa United FC, Leruma FC, Mofolo United and FC Palmeros.
Jakastad FC, Winners Park, Tim FC, Moretele Gunners and FC Palmeros will also face the music for fielding improperly registered players.
“Contrary to some perception that we are not doing enough to root out unruly behaviour and corruption within the ABC Motsepe League, we are working hard to make sure that everything is done above board. Those caught on the wrong side of the law will pay a heavy price; be it match or club officials – be warned,” said SAFA legal officer Tebogo Montlhante.
