SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — The Bulgarian Football Union has fined Levski Sofia for club fans displaying Nazi symbols during a domestic league match last weekend.
The union said on Wednesday the club will be fined 19,000 euros ($24,700) because its fans displayed banners bearing swastikas during the match against Litex in Lovech on Saturday. Levski won 2-1.
The union’s disciplinary commission called on the relevant authorities to punish the perpetrators “to the fullest extent of the law — a ban on stadium access for at least two years.”
Last September, UEFA fined Levski Sofia 30,000 euros ($39,000) for racist abuse by their fans at a Europe League match against Bosnia’s Sarajevo.
