Football Victoria (FV) welcomes this week's independent Tribunal findings following investigations into a range of recent incidents.
Along with substantial fines and lengthy bans for players, the Tribunal deducted 30 points from five clubs involved in serious violent conduct. The sanctioned clubs were St Kilda Casuals, Moreland Eagles FC, Meadow Park SC, Bundoora United FC and Craigieburn City FC.
FV believes this sends another strong message that any form of violence will not be tolerated and reiterates that clubs are responsible for the behaviour of their supporters and players.
We remain committed to ensuring that football matches uphold community standards and provide a safe and family-friendly environment at all times.
“The Tribunal’s decisions again underline FV’s call to Respect The Game. We all need to keep working together to keep our game strong and protect participants, match officials, club administrators, volunteers and spectators at each venue each week,” FV CEO Peter Filopoulos said.
