Algerian club in two-year CAF ban over footballer's death

The Confederation of African Football has banned Algerian club JS Kabylie from African competitions for two years over the death of Cameroonian footballer Albert Ebosse.

Ebosse died after being hit by an object thrown by fans after an Algerian league match last month.
Kabylie had qualified for next year’s African Champions League after finishing second in last season’s Algerian league.
Caf has also decided to establish an annual fair-play award named after Ebosse.
The executive committee said it will be “awarded every year to a member association based on a fair-play rating adopted by ExCo and to be applied in all Caf competitions for clubs and national teams of each member association.”
Algerian football authorities have already punished Kabylie.
The club have been banned from playing at home for the whole of the 2014-2015 season and their fans are also not able to attending any matches – home and away – until the start of the year.
