JOHANNESBURG - The Premier Soccer League has condemned the pitch invasion from Bloemfontein Celtic fans that caused their Absa Premiership match against Cape Town City at the Dr Molemela Stadium to be abandoned on Sunday afternoon.
PSL match commissioner on duty Stephen Moshotle was forced to call the match off 23 minutes into the match because of a group of Bloemfontein Celtics fans who invaded the pitch and threw objects onto the field of play.
