Match Review Panel Update

Brisbane Roar FC can confirm Avram Papadopoulos has received a disciplinary notice from Football Federation Australia’s independent Match Review Panel (MRP) following an incident in the second half of Saturday night’s match against Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium.

The MRP regarded the incident as constituting the offence of spitting at a player and has referred the incident to the independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee for hearing regarding what sanction should apply over and above the mandatory match suspension (which Papadopoulos must serve against Western Sydney Wanderers FC on Saturday, 2 December 2017).

The independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee hearing date will be confirmed shortly.

Brisbane Roar FC and Avram Papadopoulos will not be making any further comment on this matter until after the hearing.
