CSKA Moskva punishment reduced on appeal

The UEFA Appeals Body has partially upheld PFC CSKA Moskva's appeal against sanctions imposed following supporter incidents at the club's match at AS Roma last month.

The UEFA Appeals Body met yesterday following an appeal by PFC CSKA Moskva against the decision taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 3 October.

CSKA's appeal has partially been upheld. Therefore the original decision of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is modified as follows:

CSKA have been ordered to play their next three UEFA competition matches as host club behind closed doors. The latest is suspended for a probationary period of five years.

The Russian team has also been fined €100,000.

CSKA remain banned from selling tickets to their fans for the next two UEFA Champions League group stage games which the club will play as the visiting side.

The sanctions are related to incidents occurred at the UEFA Champions League Group E match between AS Roma and CSKA on 17 September in Italy.

CSKA had been charged for the racist behaviour of their supporters, crowd disturbances and the setting off/throwing of fireworks and missiles by their supporters.
