Polish top-flight club Legia Warsaw were on Wednesday ordered by UEFA to shut a stand used by its die-hard fans after racist chanting by supporters at a Champions League match.
UEFA said that Legia would have to bar fans from the north stand of the Stadion Wojska Polskiego during their Champions League play-off on August 27, when they face Romania’s Steaua Bucharest.
In addition, UEFA slapped a fine of 30,000 euros on the club.
The racist incidents in question occurred during Legia’s Champions League second qualifying round victory over Welsh club The New Saints on July 23.
