São Paulo and Tigre fined over Copa Sudamericana final incident


São Paulo and Tigre have both been fined over the controversial incident at the Copa Sudamericana final in which the Argentineans refused to emerge from the dressing room at half-time.

Conmebol have handed $100,000 fines to both clubs and announced that São Paulo will serve a one-match home ban in future South American club competitions.

The sanctions refer to the incident in the Copa Sudamericana final where Tigre left the pitch at half-time 2-0 down before allegations of aggression from police and security emerged as the Argentineans refused to re-emerge for the restart.

The match was subsequently suspended and referee Enrique Osses declared São Paulo the winners after the first leg ended in a 0-0 draw.

Conmebol's decision today also upholds Osses' verdict and have allowed São Paulo to remain winners of the trophy.

São Paulo are the second Brazilian club to be sanctioned this week after Corinthians faced punishment over events leading to the tragic death of a 14-year-old boy.
