Dynamos FC has both condemned and issued an apology for the violence caused by some football fans leading to the abandonment of Sunday’s premiership clash against arch-rivals, Highlanders.
Ugly scenes dominated the country’s most followed football fixture with both sets of fans invading the pitch for different reasons towards the end of the encounter.
In a statement, club spokesperson Tinashe Farawo said football was not a war.
“Dynamos Football Club is saddened by the violent scenes and hooliganism that forced the match against Highlanders FC to be abandoned at Barbourfields on Sunday 15 May 2022,” Farawo said.
“The Club condemns in strongest terms any form of violence at our football stadia.
“We apologise to all football stakeholders for the unruly behaviour dominated by a section of soccer fans that attended the match.
“Football is just a game, nor war.”
Farawo also took time to wish Highlanders defender Andrew Tandi well after the star suffered a fractured ankle under challenge from Dynamos striker Bill Antonio.
“Dynamos would like to wish Highlanders FC player, Andrew Tandi, a speedy recovery after the defender sustained an injury during the course of the game,” Farawo said.
