Perth have already been excluded from this season's finals and fined about $270,000 after being found guilty of exceeding the salary cap by more than $400,000.

But Football Federation Australia say they've allegedly uncovered another $100,000 in player payments and benefits the Glory failed to declare which would put the club more than $500,000 over the $2.55 million salary cap.

Losing competition points for next season would bring the club to its knees, with memberships and player recruitment two areas that would be seriously affected.

It is understood players with existing contracts could even be legally able to break their contracts.

Reports are rife that star striker Andy Keogh received payments through his wife that weren't included in the salary cap.
