UEFA propose 10-match ban

Apr 11, 2013, 11:04 IST | AFP

Players found guilty of racial abuse will face minimum suspensions of 10 matches, under plans laid out by UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino yesterday

Infantino also said racist offences would trigger partial stadium closures in the first instance and full stadium closures for a second incident.

The proposed punishments would affect all matches in European competition. “We have to have sanctions and they must have a deterrent effect and what we are proposing is if a player or official is convicted of racism, they should receive a 10-match suspension at least,” Infantino told the Soccerex forum in Manchester.
