Elimination Final and Triple Header confirmed for this Sunday

South Melbourne FC confirms that we will not be appealing Football Federation Victoria’s decision to deduct our Senior Men’s team three Championship Points.

The Club made the decision not to appeal after carefully considering all relevant matters and taking appropriate legal advice. The possibility of increased sanctions, including a further points deduction (now or suspended until next year) together with substantial fines, were just two of the key considerations during this process.

The club remains disappointed that it has been harshly treated under the Grievance Disciplinary and Tribunal By-Law 2016 (GDT), as it presently applies. The club is heartened, however, by FFV’s proposal to review the GDT at season’s end and it intends to fully participate in that process to achieve appropriate change.

The club will now host a triple-header on Sunday at Lakeside Stadium, which will include both our senior men and women playing important matches as they both strive to win silverware in 2016.

The day will kick-off at 1pm, with our Women’s Reserve team playing Eltham. This will then be followed by our Senior Women at 3pm also against Eltham, where a win will see them crowned 2016 State League Champions.

SMFC will then host Hume City in an Elimination Final commencing at 5.30pm, with the winner of this clash set to take on Heidelberg United in the Semi Final next weekend. With both matches against Hume so far this season being tight contests, we urge all of our fans to get behind the club and to support the team this Sunday.

All members of the club will receive free entry all through the day, with tickets for the Elimination Final being $15 for Adults and $10 for Concession.
