Royal AM have been punished for failure to adhere to the PSL’s regulations on match-day following events that happened during their recent match against Sekhukhune United.

The KwaZulu-Natal club were 2-0 winners at home on March 4 in that fixture but skipped the line in matters relating to complying with the league’s rules and regulations.

Without delay they were brought to book as confirmed by the PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu.

"I can confirm that earlier today, Ryal AM Football Club appeared before the PSL DC to answer to charges of failure to provide the match officials with the relevant communication devices, which had been provided to them by the league and in accordance with applicable prescripts," says Majavu.

"They pleaded guilty and were convicted accordingly.

"Having listened to the submissions both in aggravation and mitigation of sentence, the PSL DC fined them a monetary amount of R50 000, half of which is suspended for a period of 24 months on condition that during the period of suspension, they are not found guilty of the same offence again.

"They were further ordered to pay the costs of the DC which would, in any event, be administratively computed by the league and added to their total bill for payment," says Majavu.
