UEFA Slam PSG With A Ban And Fine Over Fireworks

Paris Saint-Germain must close part of its stadium at the next Champions League game it hosts as punishment for fans lighting flares and fireworks.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel ordered the north end of Parc des Princes closed because of incidents at PSG’s 2-1 loss to Real Madrid this month, a result that eliminated the French club from the last 16.

The runaway French league leader has already qualified for the next Champions League and its next home game is likely to be in September in the group stage.
UEFA said PSG must also pay a 43,000 euros ($53,000) fine.

PSG remains under a separate UEFA investigation for possible violations of financial fair play rules. A decision in that case should come before June.
