UEFA punishes Union Berlin for “racist behavior” of its fans
(Reuters) – UEFA on Friday ordered German club Union Berlin to close part of its stadium during its upcoming European match due to “racist behavior” by its fans at a popular European Football Conference match last month.
UEFA said the racist abuse occurred during Union Berlin’s 3-0 victory over Israel’s Maccabi Haifa in the group stage at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on September 30.
In addition to closing two sections of the stadium’s stadiums intended for the local public, UEFA imposed on the German club also placing a large banner in the stadium bearing the phrase “No to racism” during its next match in the same tournament on its home soil.
The next match for Union Berlin in the European Conference League at home will be on the fourth of next November against Feyenoord Rotterdam of the Netherlands.
