Soccer: Inter to have stand closed over racist abuse

Rome, September 17 - Serie A's sporting judge on Tuesday ordered that a section of the San Siro Stadium be closed for Inter Milan's next home game as punishment for racist abuse from fans directed at Juventus players during Saturday's 1-1 draw with the champions. The second tier of the Curva Nord end stand of the ground will be closed for Inter's match against Fiorentina on September 26. Rome clubs Lazio and AS Roma have also had sections of the Stadio Olimpico closed for matches this season because of spectator racism, as Serie A applies stiffer punishments in a bid to stamp out a problem that has scarred Italian football for years.
