City and Ipswich fined following derby

21 February 2019

The FA has confirmed that Norwich City Football Club and Ipswich Town will be fined following events at the recent local derby at Carrow Road, which City won 3-0.

Both clubs have been fined for failing to control players and officials. City’s fine is slightly higher than Ipswich’s due to the Club’s historic record in relation to this rule.

The FA have issued the following statement:

“Norwich City have been fined £25,000 and Ipswich Town have been fined £20,000 after accepting a charge for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during both the 45th and 90th minutes, as well as their officials in the 45th minute, of their EFL Championship fixture on February 10, 2019.

“In addition, Paul Lambert has been given a two-match touchline ban, effective immediately, and fined £3,000 after he also accepted an FA improper conduct charge concerning his behaviour in the 45th minute of the fixture.”
