STEAUA BUCHAREST ONE OF FOUR CLUBS HIT WITH PARTIAL STADIUM CLOSURES

Steaua Bucharest are one of four clubs who have been hit with partial stadium closures by UEFA.

The European governing body announced the sanction against the Romanian club, who play at the National Stadium, on Tuesday following racist behavior from Steaua’s supporters.

Hungarian side Debrecen, NK Maribor of Slovenia and Georgia’s Chikhura Sachkhere have all also been punished for various incidents of racial nature.

The incidents involving the first three teams all occurred during Champions League matches, while Chikhura Sachkhere were competing in the Europa League.

The bans apply for all the team’s next home European matches.
