Partial stadium closure for CSKA Moskva

Following the charge of racist behaviour by PFC CSKA Moskva fans last week, the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has ordered a partial stadium closure for their next game.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has handed down sanctions to PFC CSKA Moskva following incidents during their UEFA Champions League home game against Manchester City FC on 23 October.

Following the charge of racist behaviour by CSKA supporters during the Manchester City match (Article 14 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations), the  Control and Disciplinary Body has ordered the partial closure of the Arena Khimki, where CSKA play their home games in UEFA competition: specifically, to close sector D of the stadium during the club's next UEFA competition home match.

CSKA's next home fixture in UEFA competition is scheduled against FC Bayern München in the UEFA Champions League on 27 November.

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