Hammers cleared of FA charge

Following a Football Association disciplinary hearing on Wednesday, July 12, a charge against West Ham United, relating to crowd behaviour during our match at Millwall on November 21, 2004, was found not proven.

The Club was charged with failing to ensure that its spectators and/or persons purporting to be its supporters or followers conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from threatening and/or violent and/or provocative behaviour.

However, the FA commission ruled that the Club were not guilty of such a charge, and the case is now closed.

Legal and Commercial Director Scott Duxbury says: "We are very satisfied with the outcome of the hearing, having maintained our innocence against the charge all along, and are pleased that the matter is now closed."
