Birmingham handed £20,000 fine
Blues accepted the charge of failing to ensure no spectators or
unauthorised persons were permitted to encroach on to the pitch and
were handed the punishment by an independent regulatory commission
on Tuesday. Blues have also had a further £20,000 suspended
fine placed on top of them and warned about their future conduct.
The suspended fine will hang over the club until the end of the
2013/14 season and would be invoked were Birmingham to again fall
foul of Football Association rule E20b.
