KIEV MUST PLAY IN EMPTY STADIUM

UEFA has ordered 26-time Ukrainian Premier League champions Dynamo Kiev to play their next European club competition home fixture in an empty stadium due to racist conduct by supporters.

Ukrainian fans were allegedly racist during matches at the NSC Olimpiyskiy against Paris Saint-German in the Champions League on November 21st and against Bordeaux in the Europa League on February 14th.

UEFA said a second stadium closure will be imposed if there is a repeat incident during a three-year probationary period.

The club have appealed the sanction; no date has been set for an appeal hearing.
