Bayern Munich handed a partial stadium ban for the homophobic banner aimed at Arsenals Mesut Ozil

13 days later UEFA have acted.

On March 11th, during Bayern Munich’s home match against Arsenal in the Champions League, a homophobic banner aimed at Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil was spotted at the Allianz Arena.

The banner had the words ‘Gay Gunners’, and it depicted a crude caricature of Mesut Ozil bent over in front of a cannon.

Pictures of the banner went viral at the time, and now UEFA have punished Bayern Munich with a partial closure of their stadium for the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United.

The club have also been fined €10,000 for the “discriminatory behaviour” over the banner.
