Newcastle United hit with surprise FA Charge – 7 days to respond
Newcastle United are in trouble with the FA.
The governing body charging the club with breaking rules that prevent anybody promoting gambling on the shirts of their Under 18 side.
No details of which match(es) are involved but Newcastle United have been charged with their Under 18s wearing shirts with the FUN88 logo.
The FA have given them until next Tuesday to answer the charge, with a 6pm deadline.
The first team and Under 23s (reserves) are allowed to sport the gambling logo, so an oversight from somebody.
Hopefully this will just be seen as a mistake and any punishment minimal.
“Newcastle United have been charged for their Under-18s team wearing football shirts bearing the logo of a betting company, in breach of the FA’s kit and advertising regulations.
“The club have until 6pm on 27 March 2018 to respond to the charge.”
