PRO Statement: MIA vs PIT
During the USL Championship match between The Miami FC and Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on October 16, 2021, an officiating error was made when a goal was wrongly disallowed by the match officials.
According to the Laws of the Game: “if a direct or in-direct free kick is kicked directly into the team’s own goal, a corner kick is awarded”. The officials incorrectly believed that the goal was scored directly from the free kick, which was not the case.
The entire crew have been removed from their next PRO assignment.
