MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. The Russian Football Union (RFU) has fined CSKA 500,000 rubles ($7,900) following an indecent behavior of Moscow club’s fans on Saturday, when they spewed race-hatred chants during the match against the Makhachkala-based football club Anzhi, the head of the RFU Disciplinary Committee said.
The committee also ruled to close six CSKA fan sectors during the club’s clash with FC Rostov in Moscow scheduled for August 22, Artur Grigoryants said.
The RFU’s Disciplinary Committee has been very active imposing penalties on domestic football clubs for their fans misconduct, which often manifested race-hatred behavior, during the games.
Security and fans behavior during football matches is under close attention of the Russian football authorities also because the country is in full swing preparations for hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2018.
