Chelsea Will Face Partial Stadium Ban


UEFA has been made aware of the incident from the Europa League draw away at Vidi, where Chelsea fans were reportedly heard using an anti-Semitic term in a song aimed at rivals Tottenham.

The European governing body will wait for reports from match officials and its match delegate before deciding whether or not to take the matter further. Charges against clubs are usually filed within 24 hours.

Chelsea could face a partial stadium closure should UEFA decide to take action following the alleged racist chanting from some of their supporters in Hungary on Thursday night.

This follows a club and police investigation into alleged racist abuse aimed at Raheem Sterling at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Chelsea have condemned the incident and said any individuals who are found to have "shamed the club" will face the "strongest possible action".

However, should UEFA open proceedings and opt to punish Chelsea, the club could be hit with at least a partial stadium ban at Stamford Bridge.
