Soccer: Pro Patria get stadium ban for racist fans

Florence, January 8 - An Italian sporting judge on Tuesday ruled that fourth-tier Pro Patria must play their next home league game behind closed doors after racist chants from some of their fans caused AC Milan to abandon a friendly last week. Milan players left the field after home fans directed racist jeers at black players Kevin Prince Boateng, 'Baye Niang, Urby Emanuelson and Sulley Muntari during Thursday's match at Busto Arsizio, north of Milan. Many Pro Patria fans painted their fans black for their team's league match last weekend to show they are not racist and express solidarity for the black players.
