Pro Patria punished for racist fans

Pro Patria have been punished for their racist fans after last week's walk-off by AC Milan star Kevin-Prince Boateng.

The Lega Pro, the governing body for Italian football's third and fourth tiers, have ordered them to play a game behind closed doors having noted that Pro Patria were fined £4,000 earlier this season over "similar incidents".

The verdict read: "(The Lega Pro) will impose on the club Aurora Pro Patria the sanction of the obligation to play a league match behind closed doors, with immediate effect, with the caveat that further breach will be evaluated as an occurrence of multiple violations, for the purposes of the subsequent sanction."
