£100,000 Reading fine reduced to £40,000 by Appeal Board

Reading were fined £100,000 in August

An Appeal Board has reduced Reading’s £100,000 fine for misconduct in relation to supporter behaviour after considering the club’s appeal.

The club were sanctioned by an Independent Regulatory Commission after a charge of failing to ensure no spectators or unauthorised persons were permitted to encroach onto the pitch area whilst attending the Emirates FA Cup quarter final replay against Bradford City at the Madejski Stadium on 16 March 2015 was found proven.

However, the fine imposed by the Regulatory Commission was reduced on appeal to £40,000 with the club being warned as to its future conduct.
