Atlético de Madrid fine for throwing an umbrella in the match against Barcelona

The sanction, which can go up to 602 euros, is in application of article 110 of the Disciplinary Code

The Competition Committee of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) decided on Wednesday to fine Atlético de Madrid for "altering the order of the match of a slight nature" in the match of the last day of the League against Barcelona (0-1).

The sanction is in application of article 110 of the Disciplinary Code of the RFEF, which determines a fine of up to 602 euros to the organizing club when events defined within article 15 of this regulation occur and are qualified as minor by the disciplinary body.

The aforementioned article 15 states that when "the order is altered, the physical integrity of the referees, players, technicians or people in general is impaired or material damage or injury is caused, invasion of the playing field occurs, display symbols or violent, racist, xenophobic or intolerant songs or insults are uttered, or the normal development of the meeting is disturbed, the organizing club will incur responsibility, unless it proves the diligent fulfillment of its obligations and the adoption of the measures of prevention required by sports legislation to avoid such events or mitigate their seriousness. "

In the minutes of the match the Valencian colleague Antonio Mateu Lahoz reflected, in the public section, that “several objects were thrown, without impacting on any player, highlighting a black umbrella, being notified by public address system and achieving the desired objective”. The document, however, did not review the chants directed from the stands against the French striker of Barcelona and exrojiblanco, Antoine Griezmann.

The League denounced yesterday to the Competition Committee and the Anti-Violence Commission these events that were repeated several times during the game, when some 2000 local fans located in the South Tier of Bottom South sang in a choral and coordinated way, for approximately more than 10 seconds , the song "Griezmann die"
