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.

Napoli penalised by Control and Disciplinary Body

SSC Napoli have been punished for inappropriate conduct by fans, insufficient stadium organisation and non-respect of UEFA directives at a recent UEFA Europa League match.

Italian club SSC Napoli have been punished by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body for the inappropriate conduct of their supporters, insufficient organisation in the stadium and non-respect of UEFA directives related to stadium security at their UEFA Europa League Group F match against Swedish opponents AIK on 20 September.

The Control and Disciplinary Body decided to prohibit Napoli from selling tickets for sectors 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 23 and 24, as well as the sector for disabled spectators at the north end of the main stand (west stand) of the Stadio San Paolo, for their next UEFA Europa League game against FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk on 8 November.

This is unless Napoli can provide a report from an independent construction company which confirms, with photographic evidence, that the necessary repair work has been carried out and that the aforementioned stands meet all the relevant spectator safety standards. If such a report is submitted, the ban on ticket sales could be suspended for a probationary period of five years.

The Control and Disciplinary Body ruled that if satisfactory or partially satisfactory repairs have not been carried out by 6 November, in addition to the punishment mentioned above, the chairman of the body may, on the advice of the competent UEFA body, prohibit UEFA competition matches from taking place at the Stadio San Paolo.

Furthermore, the Control and Disciplinary Body ordered Napoli to play one UEFA competition game behind closed doors, subject to a probationary period of five years. The Italian club have also been fined €150,000.

Napoli may appeal against this decision within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.
