Luton Town FC sanctioned

An independent Regulatory Commission has fined Luton Town £35,000 for breaching FA Rule E21 in relation to crowd control at their game against Sunderland in the EFL Championship on Tuesday 16 May 2023. 
Luton Town admitted that they failed to ensure their spectators and/or supporters (and anyone purporting to be supporters or followers):

  • Conducted themselves in an orderly fashion;
  • Did not behave in an improper, threatening, violent and/or provocative way in the 14th minute; and
  • Did not commit any form of pitch incursion following the final whistle.

The Regulatory Commission imposed the club’s sanction following a hearing, and its written reasons for this decision can be seen below.
