UEFA has banned organized groups of Legia Warszawa fans from attending Champions League matches, including a game against Borussia Dortmund on 22 November.

Legia Warszawa said in a statement that "in connection with pending disciplinary proceedings relating to the incidents before the match in Madrid, the UEFA Control Ethics and Disciplinary Board decided to apply a preventive measure to the club until the end of the proceedings in the form of a ban on trips of organized groups of fans to UEFA Champions League matches."
This means Legia cannot organize trips for fans and that the guest stands in Dortmund on 22 November will be empty.
However, this does not mean that Polish fans are banned from entering the Borussia Dortmund stadium altogether – if they buy tickets individually and directly from the German club, the hosts will probably not ban them from entering the stands for Borussia Dortmund supporters.
Legia has been punished for the rowdy behaviour of its fans – recently, the club played Real Madrid in an empty stadium. (mol/pk)
