UEFA Open Investigation Against Sparta Prague over Racial Abuse on Glen Kamara
The body governing football in Europe, UEFA, has opened an investigation into the racial incidents that occurred in the Europa League game between Rangers and Sparta Prague. The students in the stadium booed Glen Kamara in the game every time he touched the ball.
Sky Sports News confirmed the investigation by UEFA on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021. The game was expected to be played behind closed doors following the racial abuse by Sparta fans on Monaco’s Aurelius Tchoumeni in August.
At least 10,000 school children with some accompanying adults were allowed into the stadium to watch the game against Rangers.
In accordance with Article 31(4) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding potential discrimination incidents allegedly occurring during the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League group-stage match between AC Sparta Praha and Rangers FC player on 30 September 2021. Information on this matter will be made available in due course.
Sparta has denied that the children racially abused anyone during the game against Rangers. They claimed the kids were innocent of the racial accusations.
