After collecting evidence, including from the FARE [Football Against Racism in Europe] observer who was present at the ground, Federation Internationale de Football Association have confirmed they have begun disciplinary proceedings.

In February, chants mocking a black player were audible from sections of the Zenit crowd during a game with German club RB Leipzig.

Alexei Smertin, the Russian Football Union's anti-discrimination inspector said that FIFA had informed the Union about the launch of an investigation into the incident.

French players, including Manchester United's Paul Pogba and FC Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, were the victim of alleged racist chants from supporters attending last month's match in Saint Petersburg.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who is overseeing World Cup preparations, told state news agencies on Tuesday that Russia was cracking down on racist fans.

World Cup tickets are being sold for nearly 40 times their face value - and football fans who buy them may be denied entry to the games, it has emerged.

UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings against Zenit - whose Krestovsky Stadium hosted the worldwide fixture - in March after racist chants were allegedly heard during a Europa League last-16 tie against RB Leipzig.

It is the third racism case at St. Petersburg Stadium, which will host a World Cup semifinal match, this season. On both occasions, the RFU paid a fine.

Tickets for the World Cup are being advertised on secondary websites for nearly 40 times their face value, according to a leading consumer rights group.

Yet the fact is that Russian Federation was previously charged with racist behaviour by its fans at the last two European Championships and this is the third racism case this season at St. Petersburg Stadium, which will host a World Cup semi-final match.
