Football: Palace fined over ‘leak’ incident

posted in: News | 0

The Premier League has fined Crystal Palace for failing to act in good faith towards Cardiff following last season’s ‘spying’ incident.
The fine follows a Premier League inquiry which was launched last spring after Cardiff complained their starting line-up had been leaked to Palace ahead of a crucial match on 5 April.
Crystal Palace won the match 3-0 in Wales and Cardiff ended up being relegated from the top flight.
The Crystal Palace sporting director Iain Moody previously worked for Cardiff, who are believed to have claimed he obtained their team prior to the match and gave the information to former Palace boss Tony Pulis.
Moody has always denied any wrongdoing but the Premier League has upheld Cardiff’s complaint.
A League statement read: “The Premier League board has considered a complaint from Cardiff City regarding the conduct of a Crystal Palace official.
“The board found that Crystal Palace breached Rule B.16 and has exercised its summary jurisdiction and fined the club.”
Rule B.16 states that “in all matters and transactions relating to the League, each club shall behave towards each other club and the league with the utmost good faith”.
