KAZAN, December 2. /TASS/. Russian football fans will not be able to attend a Champions League match in the southern French city of Bordeaux between the Russian FC Rubin Kazan and the local football club set for December 10, Kazan’s team press service said on Wednesday.
"Following recent terror attacks in Paris the French Interior Ministry banned foreign fans from attending the matches," the statement said.
Those violating the order will face six-month in jail and $31,700 fine. As most fans arrive on the eve of the match, the ban comes into force on December 9.
"Rubin highly appreciates the support of its fans but asks to follow the French ministry’s recommendations amid security concerns," the statement said.
Earlier the French Foreign Ministry ruled to prohibit football fans from visiting matches in France in order to ensure state’s security.
A number of terror attacks rocked Paris late on November 13. The total death toll from all the terror attacks reached 129; another 350 people were injured.
