The FA National Serious Case Panel deals with disciplinary issues arising from improper conduct and discrimination issues nationally.
The appointment means that Abdul Iqbal QC now sits as Chairperson with other Panel members as a Disciplinary Commission to hear and rule upon allegations brought by County Football Associations nationally in relation to alleged breaches of FA Disciplinary Regulations.
