West Ham has been charged by the English Football Association over an alleged breach of anti-doping regulations.
According to a statement by the FA, it stated: “It is alleged the club failed to ensure ‘club whereabouts’ information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months.”
Though the details of the misconduct were not revealed, the club is believed to have violated regulation 14 (d) of the FA’s anti-doping rules, which states that for a breach to occur, “information contained in such reports is either initially inaccurate or has not been updated by the club”.
West Ham in its defense said: “We would like to make it clear that the breach is a club administrative matter and does not concern any of our players.
“The breach relates to administrative oversights on the FA’s whereabouts system, for example a player’s address had been registered and the house number digits transposed, and the club will be responding to the FA in due course.”
The West London club have until 27th of February to respond to the charge.
