"The league was directed to carry the cost of the sitting on the understanding the league as the event organiser ought to have arranged security differently.

"Kaizer Chiefs was ordered to pay the cost, if any, of the inner parameter fence which was damaged by its supporters. The league was also ordered to pay the cost of the outer fence, which was damaged as a result of the invasion and due to what the DC characterised as inaccurate security arrangements.

"Both the league and Kaizer Chiefs senior officials have been directed by the DC to hold a press conference at which they would be expected to convey a message to the masses out there regarding this ill behaviour."
