Turkish Super Lig Trabzonspor To Play Six Home Games Behind Closed Doors

The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) decided on Wednesday that Trabzonspor will host their next six home games without attendance and that two Fenerbahce players would serve one-match bans for a brawl that occurred following a game last month.

Following their team’s 3-2 home loss to Fenerbahce at Papara Park, Trabzonspor supporters invaded the pitch and engaged in combat with security personnel and players.

This is only the most recent incident to plague the Turkish league this season.
