Former Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastian Desabre has caught the headlines on the continent after guiding DR Congo to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The same will be applied if the away team is found guilty of an action leading to the fault.
In case the failure was due to an unavoidable circumstance and the match had been played for less than 75% of the playing time, the match will be rescheduled by the organisers to be continued for the remaining minutes.
If the match had been played for more than that time and the results were to benefit the home club, the captains of both clubs may agree to consider the standing result as final.
In case there’s no agreement, the match will be rescheduled and continued for the remaining minutes.
