Catania to appeal against stadium ban

ROME, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Serie A side Catania will appeal against the ban imposed on their Massimino Stadium, the club's president said on Sunday.

This week the Italian Football League ordered Catania to play the rest of the season's home games at neutral venues behind closed doors as punishment for the violence that broke out at a Serie A match on Feb. 2, in which a policeman died.

'We have examined the sentence and have decided to appeal. It will be up to the disciplinary committee (of the Football League) to decide whether or not our ban will be reduced,' Antonio Pulvirenti told Italy's SKY television.

Pulvirenti was speaking shortly after Catania lost 1-0 to Fiorentina at Rimini's Neri stadium in the first of their home fixtures to be played far from the Massimino.
