Simba Punished by CAF for Hazardous Rituals at Orlando Stadium

The Tanzanian outfit Simba SC have been punished by Confederation of African Football (CAF) for their hazardous rituals at Orlando Stadium.

Simba were seen forming a huddle in the middle of Orlando Stadium on a game against Pirates in the second leg game of CAF confederations Cup quarterfinals few weeks ago.

Simba however ended up losing the game by 1-0 and they were eliminated in the penalties.

Pirates then sent a complaint to CAF over the Simba incident and the match officials also wrote the incident in their match report.

Pirates sent a report with claims that Simba lit a fire at the center of the field minutes before the game started.

The report continued that Pirates had to pour water into the fire to stop it.

The Buccaneers also sent photos to the CAF as evidence.

Simba were also allowed to share their side of the story by CAF, however the club was found guilty and were fined sum of R162 000 ($10 000).

CAF confirmed in a statement that Simba must pay the amount within 60 days of hereof.

However the Tanzanian giants still have a chance to appeal.

"Payment of 10.000 US Dollars must be made within 60 days of the date hereof," reads part of CAF's statement.
