Paris: Muslim team thrown out of league

Paris: Muslim team thrown out of league

The Muslim team first said they won't play a gay team. The players later said they do agree to play. The club, though, refused to play the game.


A mainly Muslim team has been thrown out of a local Paris league after refusing to face a side of gay players.

"The Creteil Bebel team is excluded from the Leisure Football Commission for refusing a match and (making) discriminatory comments," the commission's website said Wednesday.

The decision was taken at the body's management committee on Tuesday night, the posting said.

Paris Foot Gay (PFG) were set to play fellow Creteil side Bebel, who are composed of mainly Muslim players, on October 4.

Bebel cried off a day before in an email.


After an attempted compromise with Bebel claiming a "misunderstanding", the club again refused to face PFG.
