Feyenoord fined for crowd trouble

Dutch club Feyenoord have been fined €125,000 by UEFA following the "serious disturbances" which marred their 3-0 UEFA Cup loss at AS Nancy-Lorraine.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body, at its meeting today in Nyon, Switzerland, has imposed a fine of €125,000 on Dutch club Feyenoord for serious disturbances caused by their supporters, including the throwing of missiles, during the UEFA Cup tie at AS Nancy-Lorraine on 30 November which the French club won 3-0.

Probation period
Moreover, the Control and Disciplinary Body could order Feyenoord to play two European home matches behind closed doors if a further offence is committed during a probationary period of three years. UEFA may order this sanction to be imposed, in addition to further disciplinary sanctions for the second offence. The decision may be appealed against by Feyenoord within three days of receiving the written grounds of the verdict.
