Umeå fined SEK 50,000 for political manifestation at match

The Swedish Football Association has decided to fine Umeå IK SEK 50,000 for allowing a political manifestation at a Damallsvenskan match in violation with association rules.

The fine, which is rather high for Swedish women's football, was decided to prevent clubs from taking the risk of being fined if the sponsor money is big enough. Umeå's manager Roland Arnqvist doesn't dispute the verdict, but thinks the fine is to high. The club has not yet decided if they are going to appeal the decision.
