Irish FA Statement

The Irish Football Association’s Disciplinary Committee today (3-8-2016) upheld its decision to suspend Portadown Football Club from all affiliated football for non-payment of disciplinary fines.

The Committee said having considered points made by Portadown FC, and taking into account Article 9.3 of the Irish FA’s Disciplinary Code as well as being cognisant of Portadown’s Premiership game against Coleraine scheduled for this Saturday, they were not persuaded to exercise discretion in this case.

The decision means the suspension, which came into effect on Thursday 28th July, will remain in place until the Monday after any payment is made – in accordance with Article 9.3 of the Irish FA’s Disciplinary Code. The Committee met in Belfast earlier this evening.
