Blackpool have been fined £50,000 by the FA after a pitch invasion which caused their final game of last season to be abandoned, ITV have reported.
The FA also gave Blackpool a severe warning over its future conduct. Hundreds of supporters invaded the pitch during the first half at Bloomfield Road during Blackpool's final day match against Huddersfield Town.
Since the abandonment, the Seasiders friendly match away at Lancaster City had to be abandoned due to another prolonged pitch invasion and Pool's scheduled fixture against Morecambe was forced to be played behind closed doors over fears of fans invading the pitch.
