Caps United have been fined US$1 250 by the Premier Soccer League for causing the abandonment of a league clash against How Mine two weeks ago.
How Mine have been awarded the game on a 3-0 scoreline while Caps face further sanctions for bringing the game football into disrepute.
United players refused to play in protest over outstanding salaries, signing-on fees and winning bonuses, despite having arrived in Bulawayo 24 hours before the match.
Caps claim they had deposited the money into the players’ accounts but the payments had not reflected when they arrived in Bulawayo.

“Further the defaulting team shall be fined US $1250.”
