In a press release, the top flight governing body has expressed concerns on the eruption of violence and hooliganism at match venues.
In a move to impose a restriction on violence and hooliganism, the PSL will this Friday hold a Stakeholders Workshop in Kadoma.
The meeting to be attended by Chief Executive Officers, Security Officers, Chairpersons of Supporters Clubs from selected Clubs, Heads of Private Security Companies and Senior Zimbabwe Republic Police Officers will focus on security and crowd management at football matches.
“In a move to curtail violence and hooliganism, the PSL is holding a Stakeholders Workshop with Club Chief Executive Officers, Security Officers, Chairpersons of Supporters Clubs from selected Clubs, Heads of Private Security Companies and Senior Zimbabwe Republic Police Officers to discuss security and crowd management at football matches,” reads part of the press release.
The meeting will review incidents of violence, pitch invasions, disorderliness and match disruptions that have taken place at various stadia. Facilitators led by Chief Superintendent Brighton Mudzamiri will also address issues of crowd management and stewarding.
