UEFA decision on Mr. Carlo Tavecchio Today, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has rendered its final decision concerning Mr Carlo Tavecchio, President of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC). Following a request for information made by UEFA to the FIGC, on 20 August 2014 the UEFA Chief Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector opened a disciplinary investigation regarding alleged racist comments made by Mr. Tavecchio during his FIGC presidential election campaign. At the request of the UEFA Chief Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector disciplinary proceedings were opened against Mr. Tavecchio on 29 September 2014. After having analysed the case file and the statements submitted by both parties, the CEDB has decided, based on Articles 6, 7, 14(1) and 34(5) DR [in the spirit of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism] and taking into account Mr. Tavecchio’s decision to immediately refrain from participating in any UEFA’s activity pending the resolution of the matter, as follows: -        Mr. Tavecchio will be ineligible for any position as a UEFA Official for a period of six months starting from the communication of this decision; -       Mr. Tavecchio will not participate in the next UEFA Congress scheduled for 24 March 2015; -       Mr. Tavecchio will organise a special event in Italy aimed at increasing awareness and compliance with the principles of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism. According to Article 63 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, the CEDB decision is immediately enforceable.

Dinamo sanctioned for fans' racist behaviour

UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body has announced decisions relating to recent cases from UEFA Champions League matches involving GNK Dinamo Zagreb of Croatia.

UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body (CDB) has announced decisions relating to recent cases from UEFA Champions League matches involving GNK Dinamo Zagreb of Croatia:

• FK Austria Wien v Dinamo Zagreb, play-off second leg (27/08/13)

• Dinamo Zagreb v FC Sheriff, third qualifying round first leg (30/07/13)

Dinamo had been charged for the racist behaviour of supporters, throwing of missiles and/or fireworks, and improper conduct of the team (five cards or more).

The Croatian club have been ordered to play two home UEFA competition matches behind closed doors, with half of the suspension (one game) deferred for a probationary period of five years. They have also been fined €70,250.

The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA. Europe's football 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 such behaviour.
