QFA’s Disciplinary Committee determines Al Wakrah as 0-3 losers and Al Sailiya qualify for 2020-21 Ooredoo Cup final


The Qatar Football Association’s (QFA) Disciplinary Committee determined that Al Wakrah lost 0-3 and imposed a fine of QR10,000 on them, following an appeal made by Al Sailiya against fielding an ineligible player (Jassim Al Jalabi) during their 2020-21 season Ooredoo Cup first semifinal played between the teams on Saturday, 20th March, 2021, at the Al Sadd Stadium.

The QFA’s Disciplinary Committee meeting held on Sunday, 21st March, 2021, ruled in favour of Al Sailiya, who protested against the participation of the player in question whose name was not on the match startlist but came on as a substitute, according to Article No. 61/E of disciplinary regulations.

Al Sailiya thus qualified for the final scheduled for Friday, 26th March. They will play Al Rayyan, who beat Al Gharafa 3-0 in the second semifinal on 21st March.

It may be recalled that Al Wakrah had won the match by a 3-0 margin, with Omar Ali (26th and 82nd minutes) and Mohamed Benyettou (41st-minute penalty) scoring the goals.
