DYNAMOS have appealed against a US$10,000 fine slapped on them by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for their fans’ “unsporting behaviour” which caused a brief stoppage during their Champions league match with CA Birzetin of Tunisia at Rufaro in April.

Dynamos managed to beat Tuesday’s deadline to file an appeal, according to club secretary Chris Kasiyazi.

CAF had written to ZIFA informing them of their decision to impose the fine on Dynamos for what it described as “unsporting and regrettable behaviour of its supporters.”

South African referee Lindikhaya Bolo, who handled the match, reported that the match was temporarily stopped due to water bottles being thrown on the pitch. He said after a minute’s stoppage, the game resumed again without incidents.

The continental soccer mother body reminded ZIFA and Dynamos that the host association or club is responsible for order and security both inside and around the stadium during and after the match, and that it is liable for unsporting incidents of any kind.

Dynamos say the fine is too severe a punishment for the brief stoppage.

The Zimbabwe champions won the match 1-0 but bowed out 3-1 on aggregate to the Tunisian side, leading frustrated fans to throw plastic bottles onto the pitch.
