Both clubs, Young Lions and Beijing Guoan Talent, were slapped with $5,000 team fines and will have five points docked off each team.

All 16 players involved in the embarrassing display of misconduct in S-League history were found guilty of the charges brought against them and were handed punishments of fines ranging from $1,000 - $3,000 and/or bans of up to a year.

The five-man disciplinary team headed by K Bala Chandran, extensively reviewed five video footages of the match during the two-day hearing.

Beijing Guoan Talent midfielder Meng Yang received the most severe punishment for gross misconduct - a year's ban from all football-related activities with immediate effect and a $3,000 fine.

Video footage had revealed that the 21-year-old was guilty of kicking Young Lion Faritz Abdul Hameed in the back of the head.

Both teams have up to a week to appeal against the verdict.
