Following a pitch invasion, Football Australia punishes Melbourne Victory

According to Football Australia, sanctions are required to immediately instill confidence in the participants and supporters.

The A-League game versus Melbourne City had to be abandoned because several supporters ran onto the field.

Both players had injuries to their faces after being struck by a metal bucket as Alex King, the referee, was attempting to protect City goalie Tom Glover.

Only Victory club members will be permitted at home games, according to the regulatory body. Victory supporters would not be permitted to attend away games, it was noted.

James Johnson, the chief executive of Football Australia, stated that, “our priority is to ensure the safety and enjoyment of everyone within the venue on match days and that unacceptable behaviour by spectators is not repeated at any football match or event ever again. We believe these measures will achieve this.”

According to Victoria Police, 29 persons have been detained in connection with the incident on December 17th.

Additionally, two guys, ages 18 and 19, have been detained on suspicion of attacking Glover in two different incidents. Glover is also suspected of assaulting a security guard.

A 23-year-old man who is one of those detained is accused of hitting Glover with a bucket.
