Human error causes team sheet mistake


Young Roar’s win in the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues match against SWQ Thunder FC on Tuesday 28th June at Clive Berghofer Stadium has been reversed due to an error on the official team sheet.

A review of the matter conducted by Football Queensland with the full co-operation from Brisbane Roar Football Club determined that a last-minute change to the match day squad led to incorrect information being listed on the official team sheet at the commencement of the fixture.

As a result SWQ Thunder FC receive the three (3) competition points by a margin of four (4) goals.

Event timeline:

  • The team manager for the Young Roar was made aware by the 4th official of a mistake on the team sheet at half-time.  
  • Team manager acknowledges that it was a mistake made by human error and offered to rectify the situation immediately.
  • 4th official accepted the explanation.  It was communicated that the situation would be rectified at the completion of the game.
  • At full time BRFC was informed that there would be an incident report lodged with no further discussions.

The Roar will work on improving procedures around our NPL program and put measures in place to ensure that this does not happen again.
