European football governing body, UEFA, has ordered Bayern Munich to close part of their stadium for their Champions League match at home to Manchester United next month.

According to UEFA disciplinary committee decision, the Champions League defending champions will have to shut "Sector 124" of the Allianz Arena for the quarterfinal second leg match holding on April 9.

However, a statement released by UEFA on Monday did not give indication of which part of the stadium that section is located in or how many seats will be affected.

Uefa said fans showed "an illicit banner" during the round of 16 tie at home to Arsenal earlier this month.

It declined to give more details about the cause of the ban, although media photographs showed a group of fans with a homophobic banner aimed at Arsenal.

Apart from the stadium ban, the German club were also fined 10 000 euros ($13 800).
