Australian side Brisbane Roar have been slapped with a £7,500 fine… for not feeding match officials after an AFC Champions League game.
The A-League club were handed the punishment for breaching strict rules surrounding the AFC Champions League.
Teams are required to provide three “international buffet style” meals to the team of six officials.
But Brisbane Roar failed to do so after their game with Japanese side Kashima Antlers and were fined.
In a bad night at the office for Brisbane, they were also fined £2,350 for allowing two photographers onto the field of play without the Asian Football Confederation’s permission.
The club were fined by the AFC, with the whopping sums taken out of their £29,000 earnings from the 2-1 victory.
Amazingly though, the fines for not feeding officials and for two stray photographers outweighed those imposed on Thai side Muangthong United earlier this season.
The Thai side were given a mere £7,500 fine on Friday after Roar goalkeeper Jamie Young – formerly of Reading – suffered an horrific gash on his arm from a dodgy goalpost.
Back in April, the English stopper’s forearm was sliced open by an exposed hook while attempting a save which left him needing 26 stitches.
Brisbane went on to lose that game 3-0 as they finished bottom of their group with just four points from their six games.
