Supporters’ groups from around Europe have urged UEFA to lift what they describe as an “outdated” ban on standing areas at Champions League and Europa League matches. In an open letter to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, the fans pointed out that the ban was “absurd” as many supporters stood anyway regardless of whether they are allowed to or not. UEFA could not immediately be reached for comment. Both UEFA and the global football body FIFA ban standing fans in their competitions. (REUTERS)
