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.

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.
