thumbnail Hello,

The Yellow Canaries picked up a number of sanctions for the unruly behaviour of their fans, who rioted following surrendering the Turkish Super Lig to rivals Galatasaray

The aftermath of the Fenerbahce fan riots on Sunday during the heated Istanbul derby against Galatasaray has hit the Turkish club hard, with only women and children being permitted to watch the team at their next six games.

Fenerbahce surrendered the Super Lig title to their bitter rivals following the goalless draw, much to the disgruntlement of their supporters, who proceeded to storm the pitch and clash with police outside the stadium.

Turkey's disciplinary committee (PFDK) has decided that male supporters not be allowed to enter the Sukru Saracoglu stadium, after they were found to be the main parties guilty of breaking plastic chairs to use as projectiles against officers on duty.

Pepper spray was used against the fans, who also threw flares onto the pitch, preventing Galatasaray from celebrating their 18th league title in the open as they fled into the changing rooms.

Fenerbahce have been fined €38,750 (£30,910) for being unable to control their fans, while Galatasaray president Unal Aysal was found guilty of unsporting conduct and fined €15,000 (£12,000) for comments made after the incident.
