Kila Jisi

The Algerian Football Federation, FAF has suspended the league following Ebosse’s death and decided that $100,000 will be given to Ebosse’s family.

In addition to the salary he would have earned over the period of his contract JS Kabylie’s players will each donate a month’s salary.

Ebosse died on Saturday August 23 succumbing to injuries sustained when a stone thrown from the stands hit his head.

Algerian authorities had already ordered the indefinite closure of the 1st November 1954 stadium. That ruling will now apply to all stadiums in the country.

A statement from FAF says it has postponed the league, “in protest at the irresponsible actions of certain fanatics and hooligans who resort to violence in the stadiums which has reached an unacceptable level.”

The FA adds that it was considering taking further action, including the expulsion of the club at fault “from all competitions”.
