Govt orders ZIFA to ban drunkards & selling of beer at stadiums as measure to stop violence

Sports Minister Makhosini Hlongwane condemned the violence that has characterised Highlanders matches, of late, causing the abandonment of matches against Dynamos and FC Platinum.

Hlongwane also said that Government will order ZIFA to release a directive banning drunkards in the stadiums and the selling of beer in and around stadiums. Said Hlongwane:

The Premier Soccer League should strengthen its disciplinary process. We do not want drunkards in the stadiums and the selling of beer in and around the stadium. Zifa is going to issue a directive on that. We are very unhappy as Government that Highlanders continue with their violent conduct. I am, however, happy with the commitment from their chairman and their CEO. They have promised to work on the issues raised.

Hlongwane had invited Highlanders, the PSL, Zifa and the Sports Commission to a crucial indaba at his offices.
