No Vuvuzelas in the UEFA Champions League matches

UEFA took the decision to deny access to fans with vuvzelas in the Champions League matches and the national teams qualifying matches for European Championship in 2012.

Reasons for the decision is that they want to protect the specificity of European fans. Unlike the African stadiums, in Europe the fans sing most of the times, and the infernal noise of the famous plastic tool would damage the atmosphere, says ESPN.

UEFA said in a statement that "use of this tool would not be suitable for stadiums in Europe." At the same time,memos were sent to all 53 European national federations to put this measure into practice at stadiums which will host competitions.

The action taken by the European forum comes after FIFA's refusal to deny access on South African stadiums with vuvuzelas at the matches from the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Back then the refusal was motivated by the fact that the use of the tool is part of the tradition  and the ban would affect locals and to local folklore.



Vuvuzelelas were also banned in Turkey, the World Basketball Championship hosted by this country. The 120 dB noise created by this instrument could seriously damage hearing players and spectators, mentions the International Federation of Basketball.
