Adelaide United Player Provisionally Suspended By FFA Under Its National Anti-Doping Policy

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has provisionally suspended Adelaide United player Ken Ilso Larsen under its National Anti-Doping Policy. 

The provisional suspension follows a test that returned a positive A-sample for Benzoylecgonine (metabolite of Cocaine), which is prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Code and FFA’s National Anti-Doping Policy.  He was tested by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority on 27 January 2019.

The provisional suspension is a mandatory step under FFA’s National Anti-Doping Policy.  While it is in place, Mr Larsen is prohibited from participating in the A-League and all other WADA compliant sports.

Mr Larsen now has the opportunity to have his B-sample analysed before FFA takes steps to issue him with an Anti-Doping Rule Violation notice.

FFA will not be making further comment while this process is under way.

Larsen was recently suspended by the A-League Match Review Panel for and incident in a match on February 2 this year against Brisbane Roar.
