The Swiss Football League (SFL) on Wednesday said it had docked top flight outfit Neuchatel Xamax four points for failing to provide financial details pertinent to the awarding of operating licences.

"For omissions surrounding the awarding of licences the club is punished with the docking of four points," the SFL said in a statement after the body's disciplinary commission found that confirmation of social insurance payments had not been forthcoming for the month of August.

The SFL also found that the club had not provided official documentation for September.

The disciplinary commission had already fined Neuchatel 20,000 Swiss francs (€16,400) in November for failing to provide financial information following the May purchase of the club by Bulat Chagaev, a Chechen businessman.
