According to the FA, Sturridge has been charged with misconduct relating to Rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b).

Rule E8(1)(a) says the following: "a participant shall not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on - (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters."
