Dynamo Kiev have been sanctioned by Uefa following their fans’ racist behaviour towards visiting Everton supporters during a Europa League round-of-16 tie.

The Ukrainian side has been ordered to close part of their NSK Olimpiyskiy stadium for the first leg of their last 8 tie against Fiorentina, slated for 16 April in Kiev. The section to be closed is usually occupied by Dynamo’s ultras.

The club have also been fined €15,000 by Uefa for setting off fireworks and for insufficient organisation during the game against the Premier League outfit.

Uefa said in a statement: “The CEDB (UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body) has ordered the partial closure of the NSK Olimpiyskiy stadium during the next UEFA competition match which FC Dynamo Kyiv would play as the host club, and in particular, Blocks 43 and 45 of the stadium.

“The Ukrainian club have also been fined 15,000 euros for the setting off of fireworks and the insufficient organisation.”

The racist conduct took place during the 5-2 win over the Merseysiders in the second leg of their last-16 tie on 19 March.
