NYON, Switzerland (AP) - UEFA has ordered Dynamo Kiev to play a European club competition game next season in an empty stadium because of "racist conduct by supporters."

Ukrainian fans were allegedly racist during home games against Paris Saint-German in the Champions League on Nov. 21 and Bordeaux in the Europa League on Feb. 14.

UEFA says a second stadium closure will be imposed if there is a repeat incident during a three-year probationary period.

UEFA says the Ukrainian club has appealed the sanction. No date has been set for an appeal hearing.
