CAPE TOWN - PSL acting CEO Ronnie Schloss on Thursday sent out a clear warning to fans who misbehave during soccer games.

The league has so far criminally charged five fans for misbehaving at the match between Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows last weekend.

Some of the charges include malicious damage to property, entering the playing pitch without authority and not abiding to authority by the police.

Schloss said people go to enjoy games and it's not fair that some ruin their experience.

"If you misbehave at a stadium, we're going to charge you and hope that you will serve time in jail."
