Raja, Wydad hit with stadium ban
Raja Casablanca
Raja have been banned from play two matches before their home fans

Moroccan sides Raja and Wydad have been banned from playing before their home fans, for two matches each, due to acts of vandalism.

The Moroccan Football Federation imposed the ban after violence erupted during the Casablanca derby between the two teams on 20 October.

This means the Mohamed V stadium, shared by Raja and Wydad, would be closed for the next two league matches involving each team.

The two clubs will play their next two home matches behind closed doors.

Fans threw firecrackers and tore up seats before, during and after the match, causing huge repair costs, the federation said.

There were also numerous arrests with 27 people, including 16 minors, stopped for vandalism.
