#UEFA punishes Russia’s #Rostov for #racism by fans

UEFA has punished Rostov for fans’ racist behavior by ordering the Russian club to close a stadium section at its home debut in the group stage of the Champions League. UEFA says fans in Rostov-on-Don — a host city for the 2018 World Cup — were guilty of unspecified offensive acts during a playoff victory against Ajax on Aug. 24. A 1,500-seat section of the Olimp-2 stadium will be closed when PSV Eindhoven visits on Sept. 28.
