AMENDED AND RESTATED SPARTAN FC BYLAWS – FEBRUARY 10, 2017 – Page 10 of 12

or misconduct in the performance of his or her duty to the Club, unless, and only to the extent the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability, but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses as the court shall deem proper.

Section 9.3 – Right to Payment of Expenses

Any indemnification under Sections 9.1 and 9.2 of this Article (unless ordered by court) shall be made by the Club only as authorized in the specific case, upon a determination that indemnification of the Board Member, officer, employee or agent is proper in the circumstances because he or she has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in Sections 9.1 or 9.2 of this Article.

Section 9.6 – Indemnification Not Exclusive

The indemnification provided by this Article shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification may be entitled under the General Not for Profit Club Act of Illinois of 1986, as amended from time to time, or any successor statute, any agreement, vote of Members or disinterested Board Members or otherwise, both as to action in his or her official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office, and shall continue to a person who has ceased to be a Board Member, officer, employee, or agent, and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors, and administrators of such a person.

capacity, or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the Club would have the power to indemnify such person against such liability under the provisions of this Article.

Section 9.8 – References to Club

For purposes of this Article, references to “the Club” shall include, in addition to the surviving corporation, any merging corporation (including any corporation having merged with a merging corporation) absorbed in a merger that, if its separate existence had continues, would have had the power and authority to indemnify its Board Members, officers, employees, or agents, so that any person who was a Board Member, officer, employee, or agent of such merging corporation, or was serving at the request of such merging corporation as a Board Member, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, shall stand in the same position under the provisions of this Article with respect to the surviving corporation as such person would have with respect to such merging corporation if its separate existence had continued.
