The NWSL has fined Angel City FC for tampering after the club was found in violation of the league’s rules.

According to the NWSL’s release, the tampering is in relation to NJ//NY Gotham FC midfielder Allie Long. Long’s former coach, Freya Coombe, left Gotham in August to take over as the head coach of Angel City. Despite initially planning to finish the season with Gotham, Coombe departed early following the team’s Aug. 29 match against the Orlando Pride.

Angel City, which makes its NWSL debut as an expansion club next season, will be fined $20,000 in cash as well as $20,000 in 2022 unfunded allocation money.
