Statement from the Board

The Board of the club has been informed about an unfortunate event that lead to the premature termination of the match by the referee. The team leader and two players have been invited by Uudenmaan Piiri to present their stance to the issue at hand. Before that, the Board will have a discussion session with the team leader and players.

Our club and the Men's Team has already suffered from image loss since the event has been reported by press. Unfortunately, no member of the Board was watching the match to give the Board any first-hand opinions about the matter. Nevertheless, the board would like to make clear that the club's principle is not to tolerate any violence of any form or against any people. It is also important to remember that the event is still under investigation by Uudenmaan Piiri and possible disciplinary actions, if any, will become clear later.
