Kawasaki Frontale revealed Monday they will take measures to urge their fans to not fly a controversial wartime flag when they host Hong Kong’s Eastern SC on Tuesday in the Asian Champions League.

Frontale were fined $15,000 and placed on one-year probation by the Asian Football Confederation last Thursday after two spectators raised the 16-ray rising sun flag on April 25 during a 1-0 away win to South Korean team Suwon Bluewings.
