PSV Eindhoven will be deprived of its visiting fans in the next European match

The European Football Association (UEFA) announced today that PSV Eindhoven has been punished by playing the next match away from its home in a continental competition without visiting fans after rioting during the defeat by Arsenal in the European League last week.

Eindhoven fans smashed seats, lit fireworks and threw them at Arsenal fans during the match at the Emirates Stadium in London, when the hosts won 1-0.

UEFA also imposed a fine on the Dutch club of 40,000 euros ($40,000).

The next match for PSV Eindhoven will be against Norway's Bodø/Glimt on November 3rd.

UEFA added that PSV Eindhoven "must contact Arsenal within 30 days to settle the damages caused by their fans."

PSV Eindhoven meets Arsenal at the Phillips Stadium later today, and Arsenal leads Group A with 12 points from four matches, five points behind its second-placed Dutch rival.
