Football Victoria (FV) has today released its findings of a detailed investigation into allegations Port Melbourne SC (PMSC) breached conditions of its National Premier Leagues (NPL) Victoria License.

PMSC has co-operated with FV during the investigation, which substantiated that breaches of the Club’s NPL License did occur in 2021.

As a result, a number of sanctions have been applied to PMSC, including:

  • $15,000 fine.
  • 18 competition points retrospectively removed for the 2021 season.
  • Suspended $15,000 fine for each of the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
  • Suspended 18 competition point penalty for each of the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
  • Written warning to all players.

Suspended penalties will be immediately applied in the event of any further breach of the Football Australia National Registration, Status and Transfer Regulations (or equivalent) concerning player payments.

FV will conduct audits of all Clubs and their NPL license compliance, including spot checks through the season.
