SC Farense appeal punishment

The club who were relegated from the Segunda Liga last season following an administrative error and subsequent points deduction are again in trouble.

The Disciplinary Council of the Portuguese Football Federation has penalised both Aljustrelense and Farense with a three points deduction and €1,020 fine following their game on November 6 last year.

The game was terminated by the referee several minutes from full-time following incidents involving several players.

At the time of the termination of the game, Farense were winning 1-0 and could now lose six points.

SC Farense are unhappy with the delay in the decision of the Disciplinary Council and with the penalties applied. “It is not considered acceptable that sporting justice takes more than five months to come to a decision and whose implementation could jeopardise all the investment and effort made during the season,” reads a statement released on Monday.
