England receive one stadium match ban after EURO 2020 disruption.

England have been ordered to play a game behind closed doors in response to an inconvenience that affected Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley in July.


In addition to the ban, which includes the second suspended match, the Football Association (FA) has been fined £ 84,560 (€ 100,000) by UEFA’s governing body.

England’s ban will take place during the Nations League in June, the next international match organized by UEFA. The suspension of the match will not take place during the World Cup qualifiers as they are managed by Fifa.

UEFA said the fine stemmed from “disorderly conduct and discipline on and around the stadium, for stadium raids, throwing objects and for violence during national anthems”.

Metropolitan Police arrested 26 in Wembely on the day of the final, with a total of 51 arrests.

The FA said: “Although we are saddened by the decision, we are aware of the consequences of this UEFA decision.”

“We have decided that this will not happen again, so we have ordered an independent audit to report the situation.

“We continue to work with the relevant authorities to support their efforts to take action against those responsible and hold them accountable. “

During the semi-finals, England were fined £ 25,000 for the riots against Denmark when fans chanted an Italian song before the flag final.

On July 11, England faced Italy in the Euro 2020 final, held at Wembely in London. The supporters clashed with lawyers and entered the stadium without tickets, staying in the area where the players’ families were.

The final ended 1-1 after extra time before the Azzurri won 3-2 on penalties.

Crowds could hurt Britain and Ireland’s bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
