The FIFA international soccer organization has ruled that Hungary must play a crucial game in an empty stadium because of “abhorrent” anti-Semitic chants by fans in a friendly game against Israel last August.
The car-right Jobbik party plans to rally outside the stadium during the March 22 game to protest the ban, which the team is appealing, the Irish Times reported.
Supporters of the national team shouted “filthy Jews” and “Buchenwald” while the Israeli national anthem HaTikvah was being played.
Fans also unfurled Iranian and Palestinian Authority flags.JTA
