Amiens escape sanction after dozens injured in September barrier collapse

Amiens will not be punished by the French league after 29 people were hurt in September's collapse.

Amiens will not be sanctioned by the French football league (LFP) after dozens of fans were injured when a barrier collapsed at their stadium in September.

The league disciplinary commission released a statement saying it was closing the case after judging there was no proof of wrongdoing by either Amiens or northern rivals Lille.

In September, the Amiens-Lille match was stopped after the opening goal in the 15th minute.

Fode Ballo-Toure had just scored for Lille when he ran over to a section of visiting fans behind the goal to celebrate. As fans surged forward, the fence collapsed. Fans tumbled onto the field and the match was immediately stopped.

The hospital in Amiens said 29 people were injured.

The league said the match will be replayed on Nov. 20 without giving further details.
