Danish club fined for racist fans

27 February 2007 20:33

COPENHAGEN (AFP) - A football club in Denmark have been fined for the first time by the Danish Football Federation (DBU) on Tuesday for racism by their fans.

Second division Lyngby were fined 5,000 Kroner (670 euros/888 dollars) after their supporters racially insulted several players from the reserve team of first division FC Copenhagen during a training session last week.

It was not the first time that complaints of racism have been lodged against Lyngby supporters.

"We have zero tolerance towards racism and discrimination, and we don't want the black sheep who follow the bad example from European stadia to sully the reputation of Danish football which is known for its fair play," DBU spokesman Lars Berendt told AFP.

Berendt added that the DBU wanted "to give a clear signal to clubs as well as thuggish spectators who penalise their own team".

On Tuesday, a court in Copenhagen also upheld a 1,000 Kroner (134 euro/177 dollar) fine against a player from a fifth division club who called an opponent who refused to leave the pitch after a red card a "dirty black".
