With the long awaited start of the 2017 top flight football league set for the weekend, the league has called upon fans to desist from unruly behaviour that affects the clubs when they are fined for crowd trouble.

A full calendar is lined up for the weekend with six fixtures pencilled for Saturday and a further three set for Sunday in a season opening weekend that will see 306 season matches being played compared to last year’s 240 following the increase of the league’s teams from 16 to 18.

There are indications that deliberations with responsible stakeholders are currently underway to have some of the matches being played at night.

Premier Soccer League chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele called upon fans to accept all manner of results and carry themselves well during the season to ensure a smooth and entertaining season.

Clubs have been also called upon to come up with effective fans education programmes as a way of reducing crowd trouble at stadiums.

As the premiership this year celebrates 25 years of existence, a number of exhibitions have been lined up as a way of paying tribute to those who played a part in the laying of the bricks to construct the league.

News of an unchanged gate fee charges with negotiations for reduction will also come as sweet news to football faithfuls who have to fork out their hard earned cash to watch their favourite teams in action.
