What is a discipline personal hearing?

Modified on Thu, 27 Jul 2023 at 03:31 PM

If a Player, Club, or Official receives a Misconduct Conduct charge, they have the option to attend a Discipline Hearing where they can put forward their evidence or mitigation.


If pleading not guilty, the referee of the match in which the incident took place will also attend the hearing to give their evidence.


If pleading guilty, the player, club, or official can attend a hearing and give a verbal plea. The referee will not be in attendance if the individual pleads not guilty.
