NYON: Partizan of Belgrade must play their next home match in the Europa League under a partial closure order after incidents at the goalless Group C draw against Tottenham on September 18.

European federation UEFA has taken action to punish the Serb club for fan misbehaviour which included the setting-off of fireworks, a pitch invasion, the display of an anti-semitic banner and the use of laser pointer.

Partizan, who are home next against Besiktas of Turkey, have also been fined €40,000.

In a statement UEFA described the fight against racism as “a high priority.”

It added: “The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the field and in the stands. All forms of racist behaviour are considered serious offences against the disciplinary regulations and are punished with the most severe sanctions.

“Following the entry into force of new disciplinary regulations in June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in stricter penalties to deter any such behaviour.”
