New Delhi: The AIFF has slapped a fine of Rs 50 lakh on FC Goa for boycotting the prize distribution ceremony following their 2-3 loss to Chennaiyin FC in the final of the second edition of Indian Super League football in December 2015.

"FC Goa has been fined Rs 50 lakhs (which is to be paid within 10 days) for not attending the post match Presentation Ceremony of the Hero ISL Final 2015," the All India Football Federation said in a statement
The apex body charged FC Goa under article 53 of the AIFF disciplinary code (team misconduct), article 58 (offensive behaviour) and article 60 (threats) after the controversy-marred ISL final when FC Goa conceded two goals in the last three minutes at the Nehru Stadium at Margao.
