Rapid appeal against UEFA sanctions

SK Rapid Wien have appealed against the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body's decision following incidents at the UEFA Europa League play-off first leg against PAOK FC.

SK Rapid Wien have lodged an appeal against the punishment handed down by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body following incidents at the UEFA Europa League play-off first leg against Greek opponents PAOK FC in Salonika on 23 August.

The Austrian club were fined €75,000, and ordered to play their next UEFA competition home game behind closed doors. The punishment did not apply to the UEFA Europa League play-off second leg between Rapid and PAOK in Vienna on 30 August. Rapid won 3-0 to advance to the UEFA Europa League group stage on a 4-2 aggregate scoreline.

Rapid were also disqualified from one (current or future) UEFA competition for which it would normally qualify within the next five years. This ban is suspended for a probationary period of three years.

The meeting of the UEFA Appeals Body will be held on Friday 14 September 2012.
