Italian court rules over violent players and officials

ROME, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Violent players and club officials must be banned from soccer stadiums in the same way as fans who cause trouble, an Italian court ruled on Wednesday.

An appeal court made the judgement following a case involving a player and director of minor league team Calvi Risorta.

Footballers sent off for violent conduct are suspended for subsequent matches but often sit in the stands watching their team mates.

However, supporters who commit violence are normally barred from attending stadiums for a specified length of time.
