UEFA Open Disciplinary Proceedings Against PSG

The problems are piling up for Paris Saint-Germain, with UEFA set to come down hard on them for both Financial Fair Play and the behaviour of the club’s ultras.

Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid CF (1-2), played on 6 March in France.

Charges against Paris Saint-Germain:

– Setting off of fireworks – Art. 16 (2) (c) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
– Use of laser pointer – Art. 16 (2) (d) DR
– Insufficient organisation – Art. 33 of the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations
– Stairways blocked – Art. 38 of the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations

The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 22 March

That came during their 5-2 aggregate loss to Real Madrid during the Champions League last-16. The file on their fans’ behaviour is already being worked upon and, in the coming days, they will receive their punishment for everything that happened, particularly their use of flares, lasers, poor organisation and the blocking of stairways.

PSG have a problem with the ultras but are taking something of a lax attitude to their behaviour both inside the Parc des Princes and away from the stadium.In fact, Real even raised a complaint with UEFA over everything that happened around their hotel on Monday night as opposing fans disrupted their sleep and preparation.However, the UEFA delegate’s report only reflects everything that happened within the stadium during Tuesday night’s 2-1 win for Real Madrid.
