THE country’s flagship football league – the Castle Lager Premiership – has been suspended until further notice following incidents of violence that rocked the Battle of Zimbabwe yesterday at Barboufields Stadium.

The 2021/2022 campaign is now at MatchDay 15, two rounds of league matches away from the season halfway mark.

In a statement, which is signed by the Premier Soccer League boss Kenny Ndebele and released this afternoon, PSL wrote: “The Premier Soccer League has suspended all Castle Lager PSL matches with immediate effect until further notice following incidents of violence and hooligans that continue to take place in our football. The PSL strongly condemns such acts as they can only serve to tarnish the beautiful game of football.

“We are currently engaging all key stakeholders to find lasting solutions to these challenges. We have scheduled a meeting with security officials including the Zimbabwe Republic Police, club security officers and marshals as well as stadium owners on Friday, May 20.”

The PSL said action is being taken to institute disciplinary procedures following Sunday’s violence in Bulawayo.

“Meanwhile, we have requested Highlanders FC, Dynamos FC and the ZRP to furnish us with reports detailing the events that transpired at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday. We will take disciplinary action after receiving the said reports,” reads the PSL communique.
