Rome, May 20 - AS Roma will have to play a future
home match with part of the Stadio Olimpico closed to the public
as punishment for racist chants by their fans targeting Mario
Balotelli in Sunday's 2-1 win over Napoli, the last match of the
Serie A season.
Serie A's sporting judge said the Olimpico's 'Curva Sud'
end stand, where Roma's hardcore ultra fans watch home matches,
will be shut because of "expressions of racial discrimination"
directed at the Italy and AC Milan forward.
The punishment is severe as Roma fans were guilty of a
number of previous incidents of racist abuse, including the
chants against Balotelli and other black Milan players that
caused their side's 0-0 draw at the San Siro stadium to be
briefly suspended earlier this month.
Roma were also fined 50,000 euros, as were Inter Milan for
racist chants by their fans in Sunday's 5-2 defeat to Udinese.
