During the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final, incidents of racist behaviour by Barcelona supporters were reported. UEFA’s disciplinary committee investigated the matter and subsequently fined Barcelona €25,000 for the offensive conduct of their fans.

In addition to the racist behaviour, Barcelona has also been penalized for other infractions during the same match. The club has been fined €2,000 for the lighting of fireworks and €5,000 for acts of damage, as reported by UEFA’s disciplinary committee.

1. €25,000 Fine for Racist Behavior: Barcelona has been fined €25,000 for the unacceptable behavior displayed by some of their supporters during the match against PSG. This fine reflects UEFA’s zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination in football.

2. Suspended One-Match Ban on Ticket Sales to Away Fans: Barcelona has been issued a suspended one-match ban on selling tickets to away fans for UEFA competitions. This means that if similar incidents occur in the future, Barcelona could face the sanction of playing a match without away supporters present.

3. Additional Fines for Fireworks and Damage: Barcelona has been fined €2,000 for the lighting of fireworks and €5,000 for acts of damage committed during the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final. These fines serve as a reminder of the importance of maintaining discipline and respect within football stadiums.
