On Friday, September 28, the Russia Football Union's disciplinary committee, in accordance with the rules of the RFU, has eliminated FC Torpedo Moscow from the Russia Cup and has given FC Dynamo Moscow a 3-0 technical victory. The team has not only been disqualified, but has also been fined 300,000 rubles (about $9,666) and forced to play their next three home games in an empty Eduard Streltsov Stadium.
However, both teams were fined 200,000 rubles (about $6,444) for pyrotechnics used by supporters during the match. The RFU's decision concerned the match between FC Torpedo Moscow and Dynamo Moscow on Wednesday earlier this week, during which a brawl between supporters of both teams broke out outside the stadium and series of projectiles, including pyrotechnics, were thrown onto the pitch during the game.
