Guillermo Amor Disciplinary and Ethics Committee Hearing


Football Federation Australia’s (FFA) independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee have convened to consider an incident involving Adelaide United Head Coach Guillermo Amor.

FFA’s independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee – consisting of John Marshall SC (Chair), Lachlan Gyles SC and Robert Wheatley – convened to consider an incident referred to it, which arose in or around the 68th minute of Adelaide United’s Round 7 Hyundai A-League Match against Perth Glory on Friday, 18 November 2016.  The incident involved Guillermo Amor of Adelaide United (Head Coach).

As the Coach was expelled from the match by the Referee, the Match Review Panel (MRP) considered the incident on Monday, 21 November 2016. The MRP regarded the incident constituting unsporting conduct towards a match official and referred the incident to the Disciplinary and Ethics Committee for hearing regarding what additional sanction should apply, if any, over and above the Mandatory Match Suspension (which Amor served against Sydney FC on Saturday, 26 November 2016).

The Disciplinary and Ethics Committee tonight reserved their determination.
