Paul Lambert has been given a two-game touchline ban and fined £3,000 after the Ipswich boss was sent off against Norwich earlier this month.
Norwich have been fined £25,000 after being found guilty by the FA of failing to control their players and officials during the East Anglian derby day brawl, while Ipswich have been fined £20,000.
Lambert was sent off, along with Norwich head of performance Chris Domogalla, after an incident seconds before half-time in a fiery derby at Carrow Road on February 10.
An FA spokesperson said: "Norwich City have been fined £25,000 and Ipswich Town have been fined £20,000 after accepting a charge for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during both the 45th and 90th minutes, as well as their officials in the 45th minute of their EFL Championship fixture on 10 Feb 2019.
"In addition, Paul Lambert has been given a two-match touchline ban, effective immediately, and fined £3,000 after he also accepted an FA improper conduct charge concerning his behaviour in the 45th minute of the fixture."
Lambert did not appeal against the charge but did send a letter to the FA outlining "mitigating circumstances" surrounding the red card he received.
The Scot's ban means he will be absent from the touchline for Saturday's trip to Wigan and the home game against Reading on March 2.
