Austrian clubs denied licence

SV Austria Salzburg and Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz have lost their professional licences for next season.

The Austrian Bundesliga has withdrawn professional licences for the 2003/04 season from top-flight clubs SV Austria Salzburg and Schwarz-Weiss Bregenz for undisclosed financial reasons, the Austrian Football Association said on Wednesday.

Appeals expected
The clubs have ten days to appeal against the action and a final decision will be made by the Bundesliga committee at the end of May. Salzburg, who were Austrian champions three times in the 1990s, are currently in fourth place in the league while Bregenz are bottom in tenth position.

Further sanctions
The Bundesliga also withdrew licences from four first division clubs - DSV Leoben, SEZ BSV Bad Bleiberg, LASK Linz and SV Woergl.
