Harare: It now seems Highlanders is the unluckiest soccer club in Zimbabwe after the team was summoned for a second over weekend violence at Mandava Stadium.
Bosso supporters on Sunday forced the abandonment of their match against FC Platinum when the rowdy fans threw missiles onto the pitch after the hosts had grabbed an equaliser in the 93rd minute from the penalty spot.
Police had to fire teargas to disperse the restless crowds during the mayhem creating another bad advertisement for the game.
The league yesterday registered its displeasure on the rising incidents of violence involving Highlanders supporters.
Bosso also appeared before a PSL Disciplinary Committee last week facing charges of violence and causing the abandonment of a home match against Dynamos.
But before the judgment is even out, the club have been summoned to another hearing next Tuesday.
PSL Communications and Media Liaison officer Kudzai Bare said the authorities were not happy with the trend.
“The Premier Soccer League has received reports of violence and hooliganism which led to the abandonment of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match between FC Platinum and Highlanders FC played at Mandava Stadium on Sunday 28 May, 2017.
“The matter will now be referred to the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee for determination,” said Bare. state media
