Dinamo disciplined for fans' racist behaviour

GNK Dinamo Zagreb have been fined and ordered to close part of their stadium for their next European home game for their fans' racist chanting during a recent qualifier.

Croatian champions GNK Dinamo Zagreb have been fined €25,000 and ordered to close the east section of their stadium for their next European home game due to racist chanting by supporters at a recent UEFA Champions League qualifier.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body charged the club under the new Article 14 of the Disciplinary Regulations on racism, other discriminatory conduct and propaganda following incidents during Dinamo's 1-0 home win against Luxembourg's CS Fola Esch on 23 July in the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round.

The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA. UEFA has a policy of zero tolerance towards racism and discrimination on the pitch and in the stands. All forms of racist behaviour are considered as serious offences against the disciplinary regulations and are punished with the most severe sanctions.

Dinamo take on FC Sheriff in the third qualifying round, with the home fixture scheduled for Tuesday 30 July.
