Paris Saint-Germain would like to reiterate its stance against all forms of discrimination, both inside the stadium and in the community. That is the first vocation of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation that, for the last 14 years, has developed educational programs to promote integration and offer opportunities to underprivileged children and youths.
On Monday, UEFA hit Paris Saint-German with sanctions after the organizing committee found that PSG abused disabled Chelsea supporters during the April 2 Champions League match in Paris between the teams.
PSG have since responded, releasing the following statement on their official site in response to the sanctions:
In their decision of 21 July 2014, UEFA has ordered the partial closure of two stands of the Parc de Princes at the club's next home match of the UEFA Champions League.
This sanction was taken due to the conduct of some supporters towards disabled fans during the match against Chelsea on 3 April 2014, yet warranted no official report.
Paris Saint-Germain is surprised and shocked by this unfair decision and asks UEFA to transmit to the club the grounds for this decision; the first step to launching an appeal against this sanction.
