Bury FC has been issued with a two-match full stadium closure and £350 fine following misconduct of its supporters during the North West Counties Premier Division fixture against West Didsbury & Chorlton FC on 2 September 2023.
The Club admitted that it failed to ensure its supporters conducted themselves in an orderly fashion, and failed to ensure they did not use improper, offensive, violent, threatening, abusive, indecent, insulting and provocative language. The Club also admitted that the language and behaviour was discriminatory in that it referred to race, disability, and sexual orientation.
An independent FA Disciplinary Commission imposed the sanctions, taking into consideration numerous serious misconduct findings relating to Bury FC supporters in recent seasons.
