Anderlecht told to compensate Bayern fans for price gouging
NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA has ordered Anderlecht to compensate Bayern Munich fans in a Champions League price gouging case.
UEFA says the Belgian club must pay back 30 euros ($37) to each visiting fan who was charged 100 euros ($122) to watch a group-stage game in November.
UEFA says the Belgian champion has 15 days to contact Bayern and arrange the payments.
Bayern was previously fined 20,000 euros ($24,500) by UEFA for protests at the game in Brussels.
Fans threw fake 100-euro bills toward the pitch and held up banners in German and English, saying “Is Your Greed Now Finally Satisfied?”
English clubs have also notified UEFA this season about their visiting fans being charged much higher prices than the ones paid by home supporters.
