The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced a partnership with the South African Police Service (Saps) in an effort to eradicate violence and vandalism at stadiums.
The partnership will be through the Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) games where the police will come in their numbers to offer crime-prevention services to the community.
