PSG sanctioned over Champions League disability discrimination

Uefa has demanded that part of the Parc des Princes be closed when the Ligue 1 club next play in European football due to supporters' abuse of Chelsea fans
Paris Saint-Germain are to face partial stadium closure in their next Champions League match due to disability discrimination from fans.

Uefa has clamped down on the French champions after it was alleged that some of their supporters behaved abusively towards disabled Chelsea visitors at the Parc des Princes in last season's quarter-final clash in the European tournament.

As a result PSG, who will have automatic access to the Champions League group stage after winning Ligue 1 for the second campaign in a row, must close a section of their stadium for the first continental home tie they play in 2014-15.

A statement on the football organisation's website read: "The Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered the closure of sectors 104 and 105 of Paris Saint-Germain’s stadium, the Parc des Princes, for the next Uefa competition match which Paris Saint-Germain would play as the host club.

"The sanction has been imposed for the discriminatory conduct of some Paris Saint-Germain supporters towards disabled fans of Chelsea at last season’s Uefa Champions League quarter-final first-leg match between the two clubs in Paris on 2 April 2014."

Laurent Blanc's Parisiens were eliminated by Jose Mourinho's men in the return leg despite winning the opener at Parc des Princes 3-1 due to the away goals rule.
