UEFA punishes Atletico Madrid for fans’ far-right banner

UEFA punishes Atletico Madrid for fans' far-right bannerUEFA has ordered Atletico Madrid to close a section of its stadium as punishment for fans displaying a far-right banner at the Europa League final.

European football’s governing body says Atletico must shut off at least 3,000 seats at its first home game in the Champions League next season.

The Spanish team’s Metropolitano Stadium will also host the Champions League final next June.

UEFA’s disciplinary panel found Atletico guilty of a charge of “racist behavior” at its 3-0 win against Marseille last month in Lyon, France.
