Salary Cap Breach

COMMUNITY FOOTBALL: PLAYER PAYMENT BREACH
A South Australian community football club has breached regulations controlling the payment of players.

Community Football’s Player Payments Investigation Committee has confirmed an unnamed club has breached Regulation 31 – the Player Payment Cap.

Once the investigation is completed, a full report will be presented to the Salary Cap Commissioner to determine a penalty which may include a loss of premiership points, a loss of Approved Player Points System (APPS) points, player suspension, a fine or all of the above.

“This should serve as a warning to all clubs and players that Community Football is taking Regulation 31 very seriously,” said Community Football Manager Matt Duldig.

“Should a club choose to cheat the system, the consequences could be very damaging – not only to the club but also to the individuals found to have been involved.”

There are currently seven other club investigations underway. Despite this, Mr. Duldig said the general acceptance of the Player Payment Cap in its first year had been very encouraging.

“Although our focus is clearly on the policing of regulations, we continue to hear positive stories of the effect of the payment cap,” he said.

“Many clubs have saved money and redirected those funds towards other areas including facilities, junior development and coaching – so it’s really having a very positive effect.

“However, clubs should understand that we are determined to penalise those who are found to be cheating the system.”

This is going to be particularly important to police if SANFL salary caps come down.

It is, but it is always hard to track the old envelope of cash.
