The UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber, chaired by José Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues, has taken decisions in the cases of four clubs that had been referred to it by the acting CFCB chief investigator, due to the presence of overdue payables balances The decisions of the CFCB adjudicatory chamber are as follows: FK Ekranas (LTU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next two seasons (i.e. 2015/16 and 2016/17). The club has also been fined €15,000. CFR 1907 Cluj (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. In addition, CFR 1907 Cluj has also been fined €150,000. FC Astra Giurgiu (ROU): The club is excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18), unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. The club has also been fined €100,000. Bursaspor (TUR): The suspended exclusion imposed by the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS) in 2012 comes into effect and Bursaspor is therefore excluded from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19). The CFCB adjudicatory chamber has now imposed on Bursaspor a further exclusion (i.e. for a different season to the season in which the above-mentioned immediate exclusion applies) from participating in the next UEFA club competition for which it would otherwise qualify in the next four seasons (i.e. 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19). This new exclusion applies unless the club is able to prove by 31 January 2015 that the amounts that were identified as overdue payables on 30 September 2014 have been paid. The club has also been fined €100,000, half of which is suspended and will only fall due if the club is not able to prove by the above-mentioned deadline that it has paid the above amount of overdue payables.
The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has taken the following decisions: Match: UEFA Champions League group D, RSC Anderlecht vs Galatasaray AŞ (2-0), played on 26 November in Belgium. RSC Anderlecht: Charges: Throwing of objects - Art. 16 (2) (b) of UEFA Disciplinary Regulations; Insufficient organisation (stairs blocked) – Art. 38 of UEFA Safety & Security Regulations; Setting off of fireworks – Art. 16 (2) (c) DR Sanctions: The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered the partial closure of the RSC Anderlecht stadium during next (1) UEFA competition match in which RSC Anderlecht will play as the host club, and, in particular the sector N3 of the stadium.
