The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has imposed sanctions on FC Bayern München for incidents in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg against Arsenal FC on 11 March.

• To order the partial closure of the Fußball Arena München. Specifically, the closure of sector 124 for Bayern's next UEFA competition home match, namely their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United FC on 9 April.

• To fine the club €10,000 for the displaying of an illicit banner.
