Wolverhampton Wanderers FC fined following crowd control incidents

An independent Regulatory Commission has imposed an action plan and £100,000 fine on Wolverhampton Wanderers for two breaches of FA Rule E21 that happened during the 61st and 71st minutes of their Premier League game against Chelsea on Saturday 8 April. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers admitted that they failed to ensure their spectators and/or supporters – and anyone purporting to be their supporters or followers – conduct themselves in an orderly fashion, and do not use words or otherwise behave in a way which is improper, offensive, abusive, indecent, or insulting with either express or implied reference to sexual orientation. 

The independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for these sanctions can be seen below.
