Murray United will face Football Federation Victoria’s independent tribunal after being charged with bringing the game into disrepute.
A closed hearing is set down for Wednesday, September 19.
A football operations investigation spanning more than two months was launched into the Border NPL club after allegations Albury-Wodonga Football Association registered player Tyler Curran had lined up for Murray United’s under 20s side.
FFV prohibits dual registration under the National Registration Regulations in accordance with FIFA regulations, meaning a player can only be registered with one club at a time.
The AWFA also doesn’t permit a player to have dual registration with another club or team in an association outside of AWFA without an approved application.
A photo of Curran was taken during the under-20s clash between Murray United and Werribee City on Saturday, June 16 and appeared on Werribee City FC’s Facebook page on Sunday, June 17.
“FFV has referred Murray United to the independent tribunal with a charge of MP10 (bringing the game into disrepute),” an FFV statement said.
“Findings of the independent tribunal will be published on the FFV website after the hearing is concluded and paperwork has been processed.
“FFV does not comment on matters before the independent tribunal.”
