Poland sanctioned for racism

Poland have been given a partial stadium ban, after racist chanting in the Nations League match against Italy.

UEFA brought charges for racist chanting, as well as the setting off of fireworks, after the game on September 7.

Today the governing body has released its decision, ordering “the partial closure of the Polish Football Federation (PZPN) Stadium during the next UEFA competition match in which PZPN would play as the host association”.

That means a sector comprising at least 1,000 seats must be closed, with the sector to be communicated to UEFA at least seven days beforehand.

That section must be covered by “a banner with the wording “#EqualGame” and the UEFA logo on it”.

The Polish FA has also been fined €2,000 for the fireworks.
