Champions League: UEFA locks out Bayern fans for possible quarter-finals

As of: March 1, 2024 8:31 a.m

If FC Bayern prevails against Lazio Rome in the Champions League, the Munich team will have to do without the support of their fans in a quarter-final away. UEFA issued a ban, but the club is considering taking action against it.

FC Bayern Munich will have to forego the support of their fans at their upcoming away game in the Champions League. The disciplinary committee of the European Football Union (UEFA) sentenced the record champions to this ban after the club’s supporters set off pyrotechnics during the first leg of the round of 16 at Lazio Rome and thus violated probation conditions.

This means that the Munich supporters are likely to forego the support of their fans in a possible Champions League quarter-final away from home. However, FC Bayern has not yet accepted the fan exclusion. “We have requested the reasons for the decision and are examining the possibility of an objection,” CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen is quoted as saying on the Munich homepage.

Dreesen regretted the incidents in Italy. “We had already made an urgent appeal to our supporters in December and asked them to refrain from any further pyrotechnic activities,” said the club boss, but described the verdict as “a very hard decision”: “The team is therefore missing important support , and it hits particularly hard on the fans who always behave correctly.”

Coach Thomas Tuchel previously said this in the press conference before the Bundesliga game in Freiburg. “I hope that this affects us,” said FC Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel on Thursday. Ultimately, that would mean that his team would have prevailed despite the 0-1 defeat in the first leg against Lazio Rome next Tuesday (FC Bayern – Lazio Rome on Tuesday, March 5th, in the radio report and in the live ticker).

FC Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel didn’t want to comment much further on Thursday: “We have to move forward first.” The Bayern fans set off pyrotechnics in the “Stadio Olimpico” in Rome and also threw objects into the interior. In addition to the ban, the Munich residents were fined a total of 50,750 euros. In October, UEFA had already fined Bayern 40,000 euros for the supporters’ misconduct. This also included a probation period of two years.

Michael Reschke, former technical director of FC Bayern, and the former TSV 1860 and FC Augsburg player Moritz Leitner will be guests on “Blickpunkt Sport” on Sunday, March 3rd, from 9:45 p.m. live on BR television
