Bayern to partially close stadium against M’United – UEFA

Bayern Munich have been ordered to close part of their stadium, the Allianz Arena, for their UEFA Champions League match at home to Manchester United next month.

UEFA, Europe’s football governing body, said on Monday the order was as a result of the “discriminatory behaviour” by their supporters.

Bayern will have to shut “Sector 124″ of the Allianz Arena for the quarter-final second leg tie on April 9.

UEFA however did not give any indication of which part of the stadium that section is located in or how many seats will be affected.

It said Bayern fans showed “an illicit banner” during the round of 16 tie at home to Arsenal earlier this month.

UEFA declined to give more details about the cause of the ban, although media photographs showed a group of fans with a homophobic banner aimed at Arsenal.

The German club have also been fined 10,000 Euros (about N2.1 million).
