No fans will be allowed at the matches against Viettel on Sunday and Quang Nam on October 6. The national champions have also been fined VND85 million (US$3,700).
It follows trouble at a game on Wednesday against Nam Dinh when flares were set off in the stands, one hitting a female supporter, objects thrown onto the pitch, and clashes between visiting fans and police, which saw two officers treated in hospital.
“It is systematical fault of the Hang Day Stadium managers, letting such serious problem happen many times,” said Vu Xuan Thanh, head of Discipline Department of the Viet Nam Football Federation.
“We believe that these are necessary fines to force them tighten their security activities.”
The same punishment was given to Nam Dinh that were fined and told no travelling supporters can attend the next two away fixtures against Sanna Khanh Hoa on September 21 and Sai Gon FC on October 19.
