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 on 1 June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in more severe sanctions to deter any such behaviour.

UEFA welcomes CAS decision on Málaga

UEFA welcomes the Court of Arbitration for Sport decision regarding the requirement to comply with UEFA club licensing and financial fair play provisions in the Málaga CF case.

UEFA is pleased that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne today confirmed the decision of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber regarding the requirement to comply with the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations in the case of Málaga CF.

The Spanish side is therefore excluded from the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League and will be replaced by the next best-placed team in the Spanish domestic league, provided this club has been granted a licence and fulfils all the admission criteria. The fine of €300,000 imposed on Málaga is also confirmed.
