Football PSV away fans suspended for next European match

PSV Eindhoven have been ordered to play their next European league game without their away fans after crowds of trouble marred their Europa League defeat at Arsenal last week, UEFA said on Thursday. PSV fans tore up chairs and lit torches, throwing one at Arsenal supporters during the match at the Emirates Stadium in London, which ended in a 1-0 win for the hosts.

PSV was also fined 40,000 euros ($40,000). PSV’s next away game in the European competition is on November 3 against Bodo/Glimt from Norway.

UEFA added that PSV must “contact Arsenal FC within 30 days for settlement of the damage caused by its supporters, i.e. for the damaged seats.” PSV will take on Arsenal later on Thursday in the Philips Stadium. Arsenal lead Group A with 12 points from four games, five ahead of the second-placed Dutch side. ($1 = 0.9968 euros)
