Manchester City fined for doping violation

Manchester City have been fined after admitting to a breach of the FA's anti-doping rules.

Manchester City have been fined PS35,000 ($57,000) after admitting a breach of the Football Association's anti-doping rules, the governing body has announced.

Clubs are required to keep the FA informed of the location of their players in order to facilitate drug-testing. This includes providing the times of training sessions, home addresses of players or other addresses where the team may stay overnight.

City were charged after failing to comply with this requirement three times in the space of 12 months. No details of the specific incidents have been given but it is understood the issue related to the club in general rather than particular individuals.

City indicated last month they would not contest the charge.

"Following an independent regulatory commission hearing, Manchester City have been fined PS35,000 and warned as to their future conduct after admitting a breach of the FA's rules on anti-doping," a statement from the FA read.

"City were charged with failing to ensure their 'club whereabouts' information was accurate, contrary to Regulation 14(d)."

The matter concerned the FA's regulations and not the World Anti-Doping Agency or UK Anti-Doping, who do not deal with team violations.

The club have been contacted for comment.
