UEFA Champions League: Ajax fans banned from Champions League game at Chelsea

UEFA has banned Ajax fans from the Champions League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on November 5 following crowd trouble in their fixture at Valencia.

The ban comes following a suspended sentence imposed after Ajax’s Champions League game against Benfica last season.

Ajax were also handed a fine of €50,000 (£43,200) for the disturbances, and warned a further one-match ban could be imposed on selling tickets to their away supporters if they offend during a probationary period of one year;

An additional fine of €18,000 (£15,500) was also handed to the Dutch side for ‘improper conduct of the team’.Ajax have requested additional information from UEFA and have the right to lodge an appeal against the sanctions.

A statement on the club’s website, said: “UEFA has ruled on the events with Ajax supporters at Valencia-Ajax and the suspended sentence imposed after Benfica-Ajax last season. “The biggest sanction is that Chelsea vs Ajax will be played on November 5 without (away) fans.”
