UEFA ruling on discrimination towards disabled Chelsea fans

The European governing body UEFA has today (Tuesday) issued the following statement regarding our Champions League quarter-final first leg match in Paris in April.

The statement reads:

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered the closure of sectors 104 and 105 of Paris Saint-Germain’s stadium, the Parc des Princes, for the next (1) UEFA competition match which Paris Saint-Germain would play as the host club.

The sanction has been imposed for the discriminatory conduct of some Paris Saint-Germain supporters towards disabled fans of Chelsea FC (Art. 14 of the 2014 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations) at last season’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg match between the two clubs in Paris on 2 April 2014.
