Spanish football body orders partial closure of Sevilla stadium

IANS logoIANS 23-03-2017

Sevilla, which decided to appeal the decision, explained on its website that it received the RFEF's competition committee's decision on Wednesday, reports Efe.

The order directs the closure of a section of the stands at the stadium.

The club recalled the incidents that took place on December 16, 2016 during a match against Malaga, when the RFEF ordered a partial closure of the stadium, but after filing an appeal the closure was mitigated to a financial penalty.

Sevilla announced that if the RFEF insisted on ignoring its appeal, the club will resort to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
