ALGIERS: The Algerian football federation on Friday banned JS Kabylie from playing home games for the rest of the season after the death of Cameroon striker Albert Ebosse.
Ebosse died after being hit by a missile following Kayblie’s 2-1 defeat by USM Alger on August 23.
Kabylie will have to play all home games at a neutral ground behind closed doors until the end of February. They normally play at Tizi Ouzou.
Their supporters will only be allowed into away matches from January.
The 24-year-old Ebosse was hit by a piece of slate thrown from the stands after the league match last month, according to Sports Minister Mohamed Tahmi. Ebosse was Kabylie’s leading scorer.
The Algerian league was suspended after the death, but is due to resume on Friday. Kabylie have their next match on Saturday at USM Belabbes.
