CIS sanctions Université de Moncton for men’s soccer eligibility violations


October 25, 2013, Halifax (ISN) – Canadian Interuniversity Sport has ruled on self-disclosed eligibility violations by the Université de Moncton. The violations occurred during the 2013 men’s soccer regular season.

A Université de Moncton student-athlete participated in three regular season games while ineligible in accordance with CIS regulation (CEGEP eligibility), specifically with respect to the participation of a men’s soccer player in three regular season games (September 21 vs. Memorial, October 4 vs. Mount Allison, October 6 vs. Cape Breton) who had not retained or regained his academic eligibility following his participation in CEGEP soccer.

Under CIS Policy, this has been classified as a Level 2 infraction. The following sanctions, which are not subject to appeal, have been imposed:

  • Université de Moncton forfeits all games in which the ineligible player participated. Université de Moncton has completed regular season play and their final record for the 2013 regular season shall be changed to 4 wins 5 losses and 4 ties. Their 5-0 loss to Cape Breton (October 6) will stand and the September 21 (vs. Memorial) and October 4 (vs. Mount Allison) games shall be credited to the opposing team with an official score of 3-0. A note reading ” Université de Moncton forfeits two wins due to use of an ineligible player” shall accompany the official 2013 AUS soccer standings. All game statistics remain intact, except for the removal of any statistics credited to the ineligible player.
  • Université de Moncton has been fined by CIS and will be placed on probation for a period of 24 months, during which time the university may continue to participate in AUS and CIS competition, but will be subject to a higher level of violation if another violation occurs.
