Malaysian and Myanmar bodies fined by AFC

The Football Association of Malaysia has been given a stern warning and fined $2000 by the Asian Footbal Confederation's Disciplinary Committee for lack of security during the AFC Youth Championship 2006 qualifier between Malaysia and Myanmar last December.

The match commissioner also faulted the FAM over the organisation of the match and warned that such incidents should not occur in the future.

The committee also held the Myanmar Football Federation liable for the conduct of its fans who threw objects onto the pitch and clashed with the Malaysian supporters. The Myanmar FF has been fined $1000. The decisions are not open to appeal.
