The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has fined AmaZulu R300 000 and Moroka Swallows R200 000 following their failed attempt to halt last season’s promotion/relegation play-offs.

This comes after clubs were found guilty on charges of misconduct and bringing the League into disrepute after they launched an urgent High Court application to interdict the 2014/15 promotion play-offs of the PSL
