 CONCACAF said stadium security ejected several fans during the first half for discriminatory language following warnings on the public address system.

A match involving Mexico’s national team was stopped for the second time in four nights because of discriminatory chants. Officials stopped the CONCACAF Nations League final against the United States at Empower Field for about three minutes during second-half stoppage time Sunday night under the regional governing body’s anti-discrimination protocol.

A similar stoppage occurred Thursday night late in Mexico’s semifinal against Costa Rica, which El Tri went on to win on penalty kicks. CONCACAF said stadium security ejected several fans during the first half for discriminatory language following warnings on the public address system.
