Two Arrested, 'More Imminent' After Moses Mabhida Stadium Violence

Their statement read: "The Premier Soccer League strongly condemns acts of hooliganism and violence that took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night during the fixture between Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars".

"As the KZN Department of Sport and Recreation we don't condone the unsportsmanlike behavior displayed by the Kaizer Chiefs fans".

Already under pressure and unpopular with fans after a poor season, Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela resigned after the game saying he didn't want to be the catalyst for violence.

"Sport is ultimately about winning and losing and as such it requires a certain level of maturity from supporters of competing sports teams".

The Premier Soccer League said on Sunday morning that they will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible for the violence at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday night are brought to book.

A live interview on SABC1 with Stars player Patrick Phungwayo was interrupted as the spectators again broke the security ring at the tunnel and stormed inside, while SuperSport's live broadcast was cut short as their cameras and other equipment were damaged.

Violence could never be a solution no matter how frustrated fans might feel, Xasa continued.

South African Police Service spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala has confirmed that two people have been arrested after the chaotic scenes at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. "MEC Bongi Sithole-Moloi has called upon the fans to cascade their frustrations through correct structures within their clubs", he said.

They had managed to do so before the police could intervene.

He added that Parliament must fulfil its role and hold sporting bodies‚ such as the PSL‚ accountable to ensure that South African stadiums do not become death traps for sport loving fans.

As the supporters beat the guard, a woman can be heard shouting: "They are going to kill". "We can not allow the situation to continue".
