Amateur football club Creteil Bebel has been permanently banned from the French amateur league on Wednesday after refusing to play a match against a gay team. Last week, Paris Foot Gay said its members were victims of homophobia when Creteil, a team of Muslim players, refused to play them earlier this month. The French amateur league said it excluded Creteil for "refusing the match on discriminatory grounds." "It's a permanent exclusion, they will never be reinstated," league president Jacques Stouvenel said.
