América Fined, Warned of Stadium Ban

Logo AmericaFollowing incidents of violence at the end of their Superclásico quarterfinal game versus Chivas de Guadalajara, América has been handed a fine and an official warning regarding a stadium ban.

The club was fined an undisclosed amount – although per Article 51 of the regulations it must be between 14,000 and 280,000 pesos – and given an “Aviso de Veto” for the Estadio Azteca.

Although the incident will not force the Águilas to close the stadium for a game, they are under an official warning and any other incident will result in an automatic one-game stadium ban, which would force them to either play in another stadium or play at the Azteca behind closed doors, with no fans admitted.
