Al Ahly to pay fine for fans’ flares in Morocco

Posted on May 27, 2015


Confederation of African Football () have fined the Red Devils $5,000 after fans lit flares during an African Champions League match.

A number of fines were levied against teams participating in different African competitions during a recent CAF disciplinary board meeting in Cairo.

Al Ahly fans traveled to Morocco as their team faced Moghreb Tetouan in the round of 16. Some fans were seen igniting flares before the match started, which prompted disciplinary action by Africa’s leading football body.

The CAF decided that Al Ahly would pay a $5,000 fine, or roughly 38,000 Egyptian Pounds.

The team later lost in the away match in Cairo and were disqualified.
