The CAF’s disciplinary jury, at its meeting held at the CAF headquarters in Cairo on 5 October 2017, took the decision to sanction our club, the ASEC mimosas, for “The Jets of projectiles by the supporters of the club ASEC, towards the referee of the match” ASEC Mimosas /CF Mounana, played on 16 April 2017 at the Stade Robert Champroux as part of the Confederation Cup, “when they entered the locker room at the end of the match”.
