Lazio Ordered to Play in Empty Stadium Because of Racist Chants

Italy’s Lazio will play its next Europa League soccer home game in an empty stadium because of racist chanting by its supporters during a 1-0 win over Legia Warsaw on Sept. 19.

The club will be forced to play without anyone in the stands at its home match on Nov. 7 against Cyprus’s Apollon.

The Rome-based team was also fined 40,000 euros ($54,000) because of the racism, as well as the display of an inappropriate banner in the crowd and the lighting of fireworks, according to a statement e-mailed by UEFA, European soccer’s governing body.

UEFA said in the statement that it has a “zero tolerance” policy toward racism “on the pitch and in the stands” and gave Lazio three days to appeal.

Coach Vladimir Petkovic received a warning after the game started late.
