In a shocking set of events, Mamelodi Sundowns has confirmed that they have received a surprise charge from the Premier Soccer League for allegedly bringing the league into disrepute. It is understood that Masandawana has a date with PSL prosecutor, Nande Becker a day after Valentines day as the Tshwane based team has been accused of bringing the PSL, sponsors and SAFA into disrepute.

It has been revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns has been summoned before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on Monday as they have been accused of breaching Rule 55 in the PSL Handbook during a DSTV Premiership match they had against Stellenbosch FC as they were playing at home. When watching the league match, both teams were seen clapping their hands on the 16th minute as they were honoring the fallen Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Anele Ngcongca who died in a car accident in November 2020.

The reason for the game to be halted on the 16th minute was because Anele Ngcongca wore jersey number 16, the late defender was recently transferred to AmaZulu as he was expected to be a new addition to the KZN based outfit. Mamelodi Sundowns alongside Stellenbosch FC have both been accused of breaching PSL rules. Mamelodi Sundowns's club official, Yogesh Singh has confirmed the news to the media that this case was bought to them by the PSL DC.

Singh also confirmed to the media that the case would be heard on Monday at around 5pm, and it is also understood that Mamelodi Sundowns could also face the similar case with the PSL Disciplinary Committee as their league game against Chippa United was stopped in a similar way, as they were hosting the Eastern Cape based outfit as both sides halted the game in the second minute in honor of Motjeka Madisha who wore jersey number 2 at Mamelodi Sundowns.

It is however unclear whether the DC will officially charge the three DSTV Premiership sides in breach of Rule 55 in the PSL handbook as they have been accused by the Premier Soccer League's prosecutor. It is clear that the main accused in this case is the Premier Soccer League Champions, Mamelodi Sundowns. There has been no further comments from Stellenbosch FC and Chippa United.

And to further note, it is also unclear if the match officials who were in charge of the two games will also be charged by the PSL DC, and what needs to be noted is that the ball had out of play when the players and match officials honored the late players.
