Discipline Hearings

Discipline Hearings

We publish regular updates regarding discipline hearings and any sanctions that are imposed.



 Discipline Hearings 

 The following hearings have taken place during 2022 with regards to charges of misconduct. Each charge was heard by a panel of three FA trained commission panel members, at least one of whom was independent from NFA Board or Council, with the standard of proof being the balance of probability, i.e. the panel, when considering the evidence, decided if the occurrence of the event was more likely than not to have taken place. Any proven charge is subject to a potential appeal on specific grounds to the national Football Association. For an appeal to be processed, an individual/club needs to submit an intent to appeal to The FA within 7 days from the date the hearing result is formally communicated to the club.
