UEFA bans Eintracht Frankfurt fans from key Champions League tie at Arsenal

November 15 – Eintracht Frankfurt will not have any away fans for their crucial Europa League match at Arsenal later this month after losing their appeal against a UEFA sanction.

UEFA charged the Bundesliga side with several offences during their Group F game against Portugal’s Vitoria last month, including a late kick-off, crowd disturbances and acts of damage.

Frankfurt were already under a suspended sanction and UEFA then banned them from selling tickets to away supporters for their next two European games, which the club then appealed.

Supporters of Adi Hutter’s side were also banned from attending the clash in Belgium against Standard Liege earlier this month.
A statement from UEFA said: “The appeal of Eintracht Frankfurt against the judgement of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Commission of 17 October 2019 was rejected by the competent chamber last night.

“As a result, the ‘cut-off penalty’ for the game at Arsenal FC on 28 November in London continues.”
