Juventus lose stadium appeal

Juventus lost their appeal against a one-match ban for racist and territorial discrimination chants, adding another suspended punishment.

The Bianconeri were ordered to close the Curva Sud of the Juventus Stadium for one home game after the chants were heard during the win over Napoli on September 29.

As their appeal was rejected today, the authorities added a further suspended one-match ban pending future incidents.

This means the Curva Sud, where the ultras are based, will be closed for the game against Genoa on October 20.

There were both chants of ‘territorial discrimination’ against the people of Naples and racist abuse aimed at Kalidou Koulibaly.
