The V-League Premiership (VLP) Commission has completed a review examining all actions associated with the round 21 VLP matches between Vic Vipers FC v Hume FC and Moreland FC v Ashburton.
The VLP Commission has met with relevant Club Managers and together discussed the incidents openly.
The VLP Commission has a duty of care for the overall running of the NIKE V-League Premiership and we do not except anyone bringing the game into disrepute.
The VLP Commission issued the following charges from the above mentioned R21 matches. Charges were as followed:
- Premeditated, dangerous & malicious tackle with intent to harm
- Striking an opponent
- Pitch invasion
- Foul & abusive language
- Bringing the game into disrepute
Suspensions totalling over 13 months (with over 50 League & Cup matches to be missed) were issued. A spectator has been given a life ban and several warnings with suspended sentences were also issued.
The VLP Commission has not taken this lightly and will not tolerate any behaviour of this nature.
With women, children and grandparents watching on, we expect all players, managers, coaches & supporters to pay respect to all within the Futsal Oz stadium.
It must be said that the overall nature and spirit of the NIKE V-League Premiership is fantastic with a lot of respect between the clubs obvious. We encourage all the clubs to discuss this with their personal and encourage Fair Play.
