SYDNEY (AP) - Football Federation Australia plans to review the way it handles the cases of fans banned from attending A-League matches, a move triggered by widespread walkouts and protests during games last weekend.

Fans and supporter groups were protesting the leak to media of the names of 198 supporters who have been banned over the last three years.

Football Federation Australia chairman Steven Lowy on Thursday said that “getting angry and frustrated isn’t getting us anywhere.”

FFA chief executive David Gallop admitted he “got it wrong” when he failed to dismiss a report in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper which sparked the reaction.

Lowy says he will take a proposal to review the policy to the FFA board and draft a revised policy.
