SINGAPORE (AP) – Singapore's football authorities have suspended three players and a coach for participating in a fight between two teams before an S. League game last month.
Disciplinary Committee Chairman K. Bala Chandran says in a statement Wednesday that members of Etoile F.C. and Hougang United engaged in ''acts of hooliganism'' during the pre-game brawl that injured four people.
The fines and bans for two Etoile players ranged up to seven-match suspensions and fines as much as $2,000 Singapore dollars ($1,620). The Hougang player and coach received suspensions of up to five games and a $1,500 fine.
The clubs were fined SG$10,000 each and docked five competition points.
