UEFA Appeals Body decisions: Paris Saint-Germain: The UEFA Appeals Body met yesterday following an appeal by Paris Saint-Germain against the decision taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 17 July. The appeal of Paris has partially been admitted. Therefore the original decision of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is modified as follows: Paris have been fined €50,000. The French club have also been ordered to carry out specific transformations based on UEFA's guidelines in their stadium, the Parc des Princes, in order that people with reduced mobility are better protected during UEFA competitions. The sanction has been imposed for the discriminatory conduct of some Paris supporters towards disabled fans of Chelsea FC (Article 14 of the 2014 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations) at last season's UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg match between the clubs in the French capital on 2 April. Ferencvárosi TC: The UEFA Appeals Body also made a decision yesterday on the appeal lodged by Ferencvárosi TC against the decision taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 17 July. The appeal of Ferencváros has partially been admitted. Consequently the original decision of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is modified as follows: The partial closure of the Ferencváros stadium and the fine of €4,500 for improper conduct of the team are confirmed. The fine of €20,000 imposed on the club is overturned. The sanction has been imposed for the racist behaviour of their supporters at the UEFA Europa League first qualifying round first and second-leg matches against Sliema Wanderers FC, played on 1 and 10 July in Malta and Hungary respectively. The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA. The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the pitch and in the stands. All forms of racist behaviour are considered serious offences against the disciplinary regulations and are punished with the most severe sanctions. Following the entry into force of the new disciplinary regulations in June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in stricter penalties to deter any such behaviour.
The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has taken the following decisions after incidents at the UEFA Champions League play-off second leg between PFC Ludogorets Razgrad and FC Steaua București on 27 August in Bulgaria. FC Steaua București: Incidents: Racist behaviour – Article 14 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations; Setting off and throwing of fireworks and missiles – Art. 16(2) DR; Improper conduct of the team (five cards and more) – Art. 15(4) DR Sanction: The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered Steaua to play their next UEFA competition match as host club behind closed doors and has fined the Romanian side €50,000 for the racist behaviour of their supporters. In addition, Steaua have also been fined €10,000 for the setting-off of fireworks and throwing of missiles and €4,500 for the improper conduct of the team. PFC Ludogorets Razgrad: Incidents: Racist behaviour – Art. 14 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations; Improper conduct of the team (five cards and more) – Art. 15(4) DR; Insufficient organisation – Art. 16(1) DR; Pitch invasion – Art. 16(2) DR Sanction: The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered the partial closure of Ludogorets's stadium during the next (one) UEFA competition match which they will play as host club, and in particular sector A of the stadium. The Bulgarian side have also been fined €6,000 for the improper conduct of the team, €5,000 for insufficient organisation and €5,000 for the pitch invasion. The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA. The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the field and in the stands. All forms of racist behaviour are considered serious offences against the disciplinary regulations and are punished with the most severe sanctions. Following the entry into force of new disciplinary regulations in June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in stricter penalties to deter any such behaviour.
