Serie A Side Napoli Ordered To Play Two Matches Behind Closed Doors
Italy's sports court has ordered Serie A side Napoli to play two matches "behind closed doors," according to FOOTBALL ITALIA. The decision was made on Thursday "following the behavior of Azzurri ultras at the team’s Coppa Italia final meeting with Fiorentina on Saturday." Napoli has also been hit with a fine of €60,000 ($83,200) for the events that took place, but its opponent Fiorentina "did not escape punishment either." Fiorentina has been ordered to play one match behind a closed Curva Fiesole, "though it is suspended for the time being, for discriminatory chanting at the match." The club has also been issued a €20,000 ($27,700) penalty (FOOTBALL ITALIA, 5/7).
