Premier League fines Crystal Palace for leaking lineup info last season
The Premier League fined Crystal Palace for an incident involving Cardiff last season, the league announced Monday.
Cardiff claimed its starting lineup was leaked to Crystal Palace ahead of their April 5 match. Cardiff lost the match 3-0 and was relegated from the Premier League after the season.
The Crystal Palace sporting director Iain Moody previously worked for Cardiff, who are believed to have claimed he obtained their team prior to the match and gave the information to former Palace boss Tony Pulis.
The fine amount was not announced by the Premier League, but it could be up to £25,000. The Premier League issued a statement saying Crystal Palace did not behave with good faith towards Cardiff.
