A guy who assaulted Sevilla goalie Marko Dmitrovic last month at PSV Eindhoven’s Europa League match has been barred from accessing the club’s Philips Stadium for the next 40 years.
The match in Eindhoven was called off in the last minutes after a fan stormed onto the field and assaulted Dmitrovic, striking him in the face before being pulled to the ground by the Serbian goalie.
The East Brabant District Court sentenced the 20-year-old fan to three months in prison, with one month suspended.
‘In addition to the forty-year stadium ban, PSV will initiate proceedings to recover any damages the club incurs from him,’ the Eredivisie side said in a statement.
‘He has also received a two-year area ban around the Philips Stadium from the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
‘At the time, due to a stadium ban for previous misconduct, he should not have been present at all.’
The man was already serving a national stadium ban until 2026 imposed by the Dutch football association, but PSV said he had entered the ground with a ticket bought by a friend.
Sevilla lost the game 2-0 but advanced to the next round with a 3-2 aggregate score.
