Jack Simpson suspended

An independent Regulatory Commission has imposed a six-match suspension, £8,000 fine and face-to-face education upon Jack Simpson for misconduct on Cardiff City’s pre-season tour to Portugal in July 2023. 

It was alleged the defender used language towards a teammate that was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper contrary to FA Rule E3.1. It was further alleged that that this language constitutes an “aggravated breach”, which is defined in FA Rule E3.2, as it included a reference - whether express or implied - to race and/or colour.    

Jack Simpson admitted the charge against him, and his sanctions were imposed following a hearing. The Regulatory Commission’s written reasons can be seen below.
