While there will no doubt be some back and forth between active groups and the administration over the coming days, fans across the league were relieved to see Football Federation Australia release their promised fan ban & appeal process.

A document like this, with such wide-reaching ramifications for the league, would have gone through several edits and re-writes. FMF managed to get a draft copy which contained several fan punishments which didn’t make it to the last version.
