Independent Regulatory Commission orders Millwall FC to implement an action plan and fines the club £10,000

An Independent Regulatory Commission has ordered Millwall FC to implement an action plan and fined the club £10,000. 

The Commission found that the club had failed to use all due diligence to ensure its responsibility was discharged under FA Rule E21 in respect of the charge against it for a breach of FA Rule E20.

The FA investigated allegations of discriminatory behaviour and chanting during the club’s Emirates FA Cup fixture against Everton FC on 26 January 2019 after becoming aware of a video posted on social media. 

The FA subsequently alleged that the club failed to ensure its spectators, and all persons purporting to be its supporters or followers, conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from using abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to race and/or ethnic origin and/or colour, during the fixture. 

The written reasons in relation to this case can be found below.
