Football Notes: AC Milan To Play Behind Closed Doors Following Abusive Chants By Fans
Published October 9, 2013
Italy's football authorities have ordered Serie A side AC Milan to play its next game behind closed doors and fined the club €50,000 ($67,900) "following abusive chants by supporters against southern club Napoli" (REUTERS, 10/8). ... Fans of Greece Super League football club AEK Athens "showed their support by buying more season tickets than any other club in the Greek game" -- including European contenders Olympiakos Pirea and PAOK. AEK dropped outside the top flight for the first time ever this summer -- "relegated to the third division in order to liquidate the club's professional football branch and work off a massive debt." AEK announced on Monday that it "had sold 12,855 season tickets" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 10/8).
