Heavy penalty for PSV pitch invader

Football club PSV Eindhoven is to impose a €15,000 fine on a fan who rushed onto the pitch after the club took the premier division title on Sunday. He will also be banned from the stadium for 10 years, club security manager Frank Wijnveld told ANP.

It is the first time the club has imposed such heavy penalties since removing the high fences from round the pitch two years ago.
