Senegal not appealing CAF sanction
The Senegal football federation (FSF) announced in Dakar on Tuesday that it would not appeal recent sanctions imposed on the body by CAF following match incidents during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.
Officials said although they were given the chance to appeal the decision to suspend the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium for a period of one year, they had decided not to do so and would comply with the ruling.
The CAF Disciplinary Board also imposed a fine of $100,000 (R 880,000) on the FSF, which will be reduced by half if not incidents occurred at the Dakar facility for a period of two years.
Local supporters interrupted the Senegal-Ivory Coast clash in the return leg of the 2013 Afcon qualifier on October 13 while the Elephants were leading 2-0 in second half.
The encounter was subsequently abandoned and CAF later disqualified Senegal.
