Fenerbahçe fans have been given permission to watch the game outside the stadium

Fenerbahçe supporters have been granted permission to watch the game outside the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium on a giant 48 metre LED screen.

The Yellow Canaries have been forced to play behind closed doors after fans threw fireworks and missiles onto the pitch against Borussia Moenchengladbach in December.

UEFA's disciplinary tribunal also fined Fenerbahce €40,000 euros for the trouble at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium on 6 Dec in a match which the Bundesliga side won 3-0.

"Fenerbahce were charged with the throwing of missiles and/or fireworks and with insufficient organisation," UEFA said in a statement.

Kadıköy council however have allowed Fenerbahçe fans to support their team from the area surrounding the stadium. The supporters will bring loudspeakers and are expected to turn out in their tens of thousands.
