Egypt’s Ismaily kicked out of Champions League over crowd trouble

Jan 24, 2019 | African News | 0 comments

Egypt’s Ismaily have been thrown out of this season’s Champions League after crown trouble brought an early end to Ismaily’s home game with Tunisia’s Club Africain.

The match was called off in stoppage time after parts of the crowd threw water bottles and stones at an assistant referee and Africain players.

Club Africain were leading 2-1 and both teams and officials had to be protected as they left the pitch.

Caf said the club could yet face further sanctions from its Disciplinary Board for the trouble.

All of Ismaily’s results have been scrubbed, so Club Africain do not get the benefit of a win from the game.

The stadium in Ismailia is one of those proposed by organisers of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
