Moroka Swallows charged for failing to honour DStv Premiership fixtures

Moroka Swallows have been charged for their failure to honour two recent DStv Premiership fixtures.

The Dube Birds were scheduled to face Mamelodi Sundowns on December 27 and Golden Arrows on December 30 but both games were cancelled.

The Swallows players had refused to train and play the games after an unresolved issue over a non-payment of salaries.

Chairman David Magashoa admitting his struggles this season after failing to secure a title sponsorship and has since suggested he may be forced to sell the club.

Premier Soccer League prosecutor Zola Majavu has now confirmed a formal charge.

Majavu was quoted by iDiski Times: “I can confirm Moroka Swallows football club were charged for misconduct and brining the league into disrepute pursuant to their failure to honour fixtures scheduled for the 27 and 30 December 2023.

“They will appear before the PSL DC on the 11 January 2024 and 11h00 at the offices of the league – once the matter is finalised will a further update be provided.”
