LouCity to appeal USL fines, suspension

By Louisville City FC, 08/03/16, 5:45PM EDT


The club was saddled with fines and a suspension after Saturday's game against Orlando.

Louisville City FC plans to appeal the penalties levied in Thursday's United Soccer League Discipline Report that calls for fines and a multi-game suspension on the heels of the club's loss Saturday to Orlando City B.

LouCity assistant coach Daniel Byrd has been issued a three-game suspension, one game due to his ejection following a 2-1 loss to Orlando and two for "defamatory comments regarding the officiating and league through social media." Additionally, Byrd was ordered to pay a fine.

The league also fined head coach James O'Connor and the club itself for comments made in his postgame press conference. 

The USL did not disclose the amount of the fines.
