Espanyol fined 3,000 euros for crowd trouble

MADRID, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Espanyol has been fined 3,000 euros ($4,076) by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on Tuesday for the crowd trouble that marred last month's city derby against Barcelona.

The Primera Liga match at Espanyol's Montjuic stadium on Sept. 27 had to be halted for almost 10 minutes in the second half, after a flare was thrown from the upper tier towards fans in a lower section during the disturbances.

The RFEF's disciplinary committee classified the incident as a "serious offence" and said a similar incident in the future could see the club punished with a stadium closure.

Espanyol, who lost the game 2-1, said in a statement on its website (www.rcdespanyol.com) it would not contest the decision.

Last week, Spain's government-run Anti-violence commission recommended an 18,500 euros fine.
