An independent Appeal Board has dismissed an appeal by The FA against an independent Regulatory Commission’s decision in relation to a case involving Imran Louza and therefore he will face no further action.
It was alleged that the Watford FC midfielder had breached FA Rule E1.1 by spitting at an opposing player towards the end of their game against Swansea City AFC in the EFL Championship on Wednesday 5 October 2022.
The independent Regulatory Commission found the charge against Imran Louza not proven and The FA subsequently appealed against that decision.
Both the independent Appeal Board and independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for their respective decisions can be found below.
