ZIFA Quashes PSL Ruling Against Herentals FC

Zimbabwe Premiership club Herentals FC have successfully overturned the decision by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) disciplinary committee to find them guilty of match-fixing.

In its judgement released on Friday night, a four-member Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) Appeals Board, also reversed a life ban from football that had been placed on Oliver Chirenga, who was said to be Herentals team manager and accused of having been the middleman in the match-fixing scam. Part of the ruling reads:

The conviction of the Appellants (Herentals and Chirenga) made by the PSL Disciplinary Committee on the 8th of January 2020 be and is hereby set aside. As a result, the 1st Appellants (Herentals) and 2nd Appellants (Chirenga) are hereby found Not Guilty and Acquitted.

The PSL had docked Herentals of three points and slapped the club with a $300 000 fine after finding them guilty of manipulating the result of their match against Black Rhinos in 2019.

The ZIFA ruling entails that “The Students” will now keep their place in the Premiership.
