FOOTBALL PLAYERS IN ENGLISH LEAGUES TO START GETTING BANNED FOR SIMULATION FROM NEXT SEASON

The Football Association has announced it will start punishing players found guilty of simulation from next season.

The FA revealed that a retrospective action could be taken by a panel consisting of one ex-player, one ex-manager, and one ex-match official.

The panel will be asked to review all available video footage of a diving incident independently and then advise the FA whether to believe it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.

Only in circumstances where the panels come to a unanimous agreement would the FA charge the individual concerned.

Players found guilty of simulation under the new offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ will receive a two-match ban.
