UEFA Proposes New Minimum 10-Game Ban for Racist Abuse: The Daily EPL

uefa logo UEFA Proposes New Minimum 10 Game Ban for Racist Abuse: The Daily EPL

UEFA has proposed a new minimum 10-game ban for racist abuse.

UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino outlined the plans at this week’s SoccerEx conference. “We have to have sanctions and they must have a deterrent effect,” said Infantino. “What we are proposing is if a player or official is convicted of racism they should receive a 10-match suspension at least. If supporters at a club are found guilty of racist abuse the first sanction will be a partial closure of the part of the stadium from which the racist abuse took place,” said Infantino. “For a second offense there will be the full closure and a minimum fine of 50,000 euros.”

“These measures will be approved by the executive committee by May. We shall also submit to the whole of Uefa’s member associations a resolution asking that all members should implement the same measures.”

The move by UEFA is a welcome one, and hopefully the measures will be approved in a timely manner so the authorities can help eradicate horrible behavior from soccer matches.
