Curran suspended for 63 days

Andrew Curran has been suspended immediately from all football and football activity, which includes a ground ban, for 63 days up to and including Wednesday 14 March 2022, and ordered to complete a mandatory education course following a breach of FA Rule E3.

The FA alleged that he used improper and/or abusive and/or insulting language, which is contrary to FA Rule E3.1, during a meeting in relation to Rochdale AFC. It was further alleged that the language constitutes an “aggravated breach”, as defined in FA Rule E3.2, as it included a reference, whether express or implied, to sexual orientation.

An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently upheld these allegations and imposed this sanction. Its written reasons for these decisions will be published in due course.
