Dynamos are facing a $2 000 fine from the Premier Soccer League (PSL), after their supporters threw missiles on to the field of play in their team’s 1-1 draw with Yadah FC at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday. The club was fined the same amount for a similar offence last season. According to the PSL’s Standing Order and Fines, missile throwing by fans attracts a $2 000 fine for the club.
Dynamos supporters started throwing missiles on to the field in the first half, protesting a throw-in decision that had gone against their team. During the half-time break a police officer unintentionally discharged a teargas canister, and the supporters responded by throwing various objects at the law enforcement agents. The officers detonated another canister to try and disperse the crowd, which resulted in some of the fans seeking safety in the playing field, forcing a delay in the restart of the match by 15 minutes.
