Partial stadium closure and fine for Bayern

Following the discriminatory behaviour by FC Bayern München fans on 11 March and displaying of an illicit banner, the club have been told to close part of their stadium.

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.

Following the charge of discriminatory behaviour by Bayern supporters (Article 14 UEFA Disciplinary Regulations) and the displaying of an illicit banner (Article 16(2e) DR) during the 1-1 draw in Munich, the Control and Disciplinary Body has decided:

• 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.
