Richards Bay FC is playing their opening match of the season against Ubuntu Cape Town on Sunday behind closed doors. This development came after the Disciplinary Committee of the PSL decided to take action against club assistant coach Sello Ntulu.
Sello Ntulu abused and manhandled the assistant referee Tsepho Nojila on their match against the Super Eagles in April. The Premier Soccer League released a statement relating to disciplinary hearing of Sello Ntulu and Richards Bay FC
The statement reads; In compliance with the ruling of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee, Richards Bay FC will play their National First Division home game this weekend against Ubuntu Cape Town behind closed doors.
Charges Imposed on Richards Bay FC
The football club was found guilty for failing to control their assistant coach Sello Ntulu. The behaviour of Richards Bay FC assistant coach might have led to the disciplinary action they are suffering today but there is more to it. The justification of the jury’s decision also came from the football club not preparing well for matches.
The club was also found guilty of not providing suitable security at the match. Therefore the club was fined R200 000.00 with R125 000.00 suspended for 24 months. The decision for Richards Bay FC to play their opening match behind closed doors was also brought into the picture.
The effects of the ruling are going to be very tough on Richards Bay FC when they play their match on Sunday. Spectators will not be allowed at this match. The only group of personnel allowed are the players, ball boys, security staff, medical staff and the media.
No supporter is allowed on the grounds on Sunday but do not be devastated. You can still play online slots at Yebo Casino and stand a stance to win a lot of life-changing jackpot prize.
