The Disciplinary Commission today announced the sanctions from the 2nd leg of the Apertura 2016 Gran Fiesta quarterfinals. It’s a rather long list with 4 ejections, 3 of which were incurred by Tijuana including both their coach and assistant coach getting tossed early on. Because Tijuana is now out of the playoffs, all 3 suspended individuals will have to sit out the first game of the Clausura 2017 Tournament. Necaxa also will be missing Claudio Riano for the first game of their matchup with America due to his being ejected against Pachuca.
Also of note, the Commission announced that regarding events that took place at Estadio Azteca during the first match of the America-Guadalajara matchup, the investigation has concluded and America was punished with a Notice of Veto Stadium for violating Article 51 of Regulations, and an undisclosed fine. The article has something to do with being in the area of the stadium within 8 hours of game time. And there also will be an investigation into events that took place after the Necaxa-Pachuca game at Estadio Hidalgo. No further details were released.
