MLS Disciplinary Committee has suspended Christian Fuchs an additional one-match and an undisclosed fine for violent conduct in the 55th minute of Charlotte's match against New York City FC on September 10.

The play was reviewed under Disciplinary Committee Parameter 2, in which the MLS Disciplinary Committee may act where the officials see an incident and issue a red card. The Disciplinary Committee may review the play for further disciplinary action, over and above the mandatory suspension and fine. Under Parameter 2, supplemental discipline (suspension and/or fine) will be administered if the Disciplinary Committee believes the offense is egregious in nature, and/or it must act to protect player safety, and/or it must protect the integrity of the game, and/or the player is guilty of repeat behavior.

The one-match suspension will be in addition to the automatic one-match suspension for the red card Fuchs received during the game. He will be unavailable for Charlotte’s next two matches: on September 17 against Chicago Fire FC and October 1 against the Philadelphia Union.

Fuchs will also be unavailable for the Columbus Crew match on October 5 due to previous suspension for red card received during the Toronto FC match on July 23.
