Dinamo has already been fined a total of 140,000 euro this season for the use of pyrotechnics, racism and throwing objects onto the pitch.

Football club Dinamo Zagreb has been penalized by UEFA for incidents that took place during the Europa League match against Anderlecht in Brussels on October 4, 2018, reports Goal.hr on October 12, 2018. 

The punishment is anything but light, and forces the Croatian champion to close the north stands of Maksimir for their next UEFA match, which is against Spartak Trnava scheduled for November 8th.

The club also has to pay 50,000 euro because of racist chants, 5,000 euro for the use of pyrotechnic devices, and another 8,000 euro for throwing objects onto the field. In addition, Dinamo must hang the sign #EQUALGAME with the UEFA coat of arms at the next match in the north stands of Maksimir stadium.


Dinamo has already been fined a total of 140,000 euro this season due to the use of pyrotechnics, racism and throwing objects onto the pitch. 

The punishment could have been worse, as Dinamo feared UEFA would close the entire stadium to fans, and that the club would play their European games in the spring behind closed doors. Dinamo is still awaiting a decision on the penalties for incidents that happened during the first game against Fenerbahce, which was played on September 20 in Zagreb.
