THE Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League (PSL) has with immediate effect suspended all Castle Lager Premier league matches owing to the violence that erupted at Barbourfields on Sunday during the clash between Highlanders and Dynamos.

PSL chief executive officer, Kennedy Ndebele said the league would be on hold until further notice as they seek a lasting solution to the hooliganism scourge that continues to haunt the local game.

“The Premier Soccer League has suspended all Castle Lager PSL matches with immediate effect until further notice following incidents of violence and hooliganism that continue to take place in our football”, he said.

Ndebele added that, “the PSL strongly condemns such acts as they can only serve to tarnish the beautiful game of football.

However, the PSL has not yet taken any disciplinary action against either of the teams as they are still waiting for official reports from all stakeholders involved.

“Meanwhile, we have requested Highlanders FC, Dynamos FC and the police to furnish us with reports detailing the events that transpired at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday 15 May 2022. We will take disciplinary action after receiving the said reports”, he said.

An almost similar incident happened between the two teams when they clashed in Bulawayo on the 18th of last month in the Independence Cup final.
