FFA Media Release: Outcome of independent Match Review Panel – Round 7

The independent Match Review Panel (MRP) – consisting of Simon Micallef (Chair), Alan Contini and Adam D’Apuzzo – convened today to consider an incident involving Guillermo Amor (Head Coach, Adelaide United) which occurred in or around the 68th minute of Adelaide United’s Round 7 match against Perth Glory on Friday, 18 November 2016.
The MRP has the authority to consider the incident as Amor was expelled from the match by the Referee. The MRP regarded the incident constituting unsporting conduct towards a match official and has referred the incident to the Disciplinary and Ethics Committee for hearing regarding what sanction should apply over and above the Mandatory Match Suspension (which Amor must serve against Sydney FC on Saturday, 26 November 2016).
The Disciplinary and Ethics Committee hearing date is to be confirmed.
