Spectators will now be able to attend Ukraine’s World Cup qualifier against Poland on October 11 in Kharkiv after FIFA went back on its ruling that the game be played behind closed doors.

Football Against Racism Europe observers reported that “racist and discriminatory incidents” took place during the World Cup qualifier between Ukraine and San Marino in Lviv on September 6.

World football’s governing body said that Ukraine appealed the decision and because there was not enough time for the appeals committee to meet ahead of the fixture the sanction has been lifted.

FIFA say once the appeals committee has heard the case a further announcement will be made.
