The Appeals Commission of the Tunisian Football Federation (FTF) has announced a reduction in the sanctions initially imposed on Espérance Sportive de Tunis and Etoile Sportive du Sahel. The two prominent Ligue 1 clubs will now play just one match behind closed doors, instead of the original two-match sanction handed down by the National Professional Football League (LNFP).

Appeals Commission’s Verdict

The decision comes after an appeal by both clubs against the LNFP’s earlier ruling.

The Appeals Commission reviewed the cases and opted to reduce the severity of the punishment, allowing the clubs to have their fans back sooner than anticipated.

This decision is likely to be welcomed by supporters who play a crucial role in the atmosphere and morale during matches.

Financial Penalty Upheld

However, the financial aspect of the penalty remains unchanged. The FTF Appeals Commission confirmed the fine of 7,500 dinars (approximately 2,400 USD) for each club.

This amount will be deducted from the television rights payments due to Espérance de Tunis and Etoile Sportive du Sahel.

The confirmation of the fine underscores the FTF’s stance on maintaining financial penalties as a deterrent for any future infractions.

Background of the Sanctions

The initial sanctions were imposed following incidents that occurred during recent fixtures, leading the LNFP to take strict action against both clubs.

The reduction of the closed-door sanction reflects a balance between enforcing discipline and recognizing the importance of fan support in football.

Looking Ahead

With the reduction in the sanction, both ES Tunis and ES Sahel will now focus on their upcoming fixtures, knowing they will soon have the backing of their passionate supporters.

The presence of fans is expected to provide a significant boost to the teams’ performances on the pitch.

Impact on Tunisian Football

This decision by the FTF Appeals Commission highlights the dynamic nature of football governance in Tunisia.

It shows a willingness to listen to appeals and make adjustments that benefit the sport, while still holding clubs accountable for their actions.

The quick resolution of this matter allows the clubs to refocus on their campaigns without prolonged uncertainty.

In conclusion, the reduction of the closed-door sanction to one match for ES Tunis and ES Sahel, while maintaining the financial penalty, illustrates the FTF’s balanced approach to football discipline.

As the clubs prepare for their next matches, the return of their fans will undoubtedly be a significant morale boost, enhancing the vibrant atmosphere that Tunisian football is known for.
