UEFA fines Barcelona after Champions League exit


UEFA has imposed a fine of at least €32000 on Barcelona for the behaviour of their fans during the Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain, specifically in the first leg in Paris, as per Marca.

Among the transgressions cited by the governing body, UEFA says Barcelona must pay €2000 for lighting flares, €5000 for damages caused and contact PSG in 30 days to pay for the repair of seats, and €25000 for their fans’ racist behaviour.

This is not the first time that Barcelona have faced sanctions under UEFA’s disciplinary code.

Their fans have been caught making racial slurs often in the past for which they have been fined.

Recently, racist chants were directed at Real Madrid player Vinicius Junior during their game with Napoli.

An additional punishment has been imposed on Barcelona, they will not be allowed to sell tickets to their fans for away games in Europe, although this is a suspended sentence for the next year.

If there is any other infraction in the future, this will come into effect.

UEFA has warned Barcelona about the behaviour of their fans in the future.
