Egypt’s Zamalek fined, to play behind closed doors
The Confederation of African Football has fined Egyptian club
Zamalek $80,000 and ordered it to play behind closed doors
following a violent pitch invasion by fans in an African Champions
League game in Cairo.
CAF says on Wednesday that Zamalek is guilty of violating four
articles of the body’s disciplinary code in the match against
Tunisia’s Club Africain on April 2, when its supporters tried to
attack the visiting players and referee.
CAF rules Zamalek will play its next four home games in CAF
competitions without supporters, with two of those games
Zamalek’s was one of 10 sanctions handed out at Tuesday’s CAF
disciplinary body meeting in Johannesburg, with Senegal fined
$5,000 for a pitch invasion in an African Cup of Nations qualifier
