0 20

A 20 year old fan was given 40 years stadium ban for attacking Sevilla’s goalkeeper in the Europa League.

A young fan who attacked Sevilla goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic during PSV Eindhoven’s Europa League clash  has received Stadium ban for the next 40 years, the Dutch club stated this on Monday.

The match in Eindhoven was stopped during the closing stages after the supporter ran on to the pitch and assaulted Dmitrovic, punching him in the face before being wrestled to the ground by the Serbian goalkeeper.

The Dutch supporter was handed a three-month prison sentence, with one month suspended by the East Brabant District Court.

“In addition to the 40-year stadium ban, PSV will initiate proceedings to recover any damages the club incurs from him,” the Eredivisie side said in a statement.

“He has also received a two-year area ban around the Philips Stadium from the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

“At the time, due to a stadium ban for previous misconduct, he should not have been present at all.”

The man was already serving a national stadium ban until 2026 imposed by the Dutch football association, but PSV said he had entered the ground with a ticket bought by a friend.

Sevilla lost the game 1-0 but qualified for the next round with a 3-2 aggregate score. The six-times winners of the competition face Manchester United in the quarterfinals next month.
