UEFA hands Russia ‘suspended disqualification’ from Euro 2016

Russia's national football team has been given a suspended disqualification from Euro 2016 by UEFA due to fan violence. The team was also handed a 150,000 euro fine.


Russia’s national football team has been given a suspended disqualification from Euro 2016 by UEFA due to fan violence. The team was also handed a 150,000 euro fine.
European football’s governing body UEFA announced the punishment in a statement on Tuesday, saying the charges were related to “crowd behavior, use of fireworks and racist behavior.”

UEFA opened an investigation into Russian fan behavior following their clashes with England fans at Marseille’s Stade Velodrome on Saturday.

The suspended disqualification will last the duration of the tournament, according to the football body.

“Such suspension will be lifted if incidents of a similar nature (crowd disturbances) happen inside the stadium at any of the remaining matches of the Russian team during the tournament,” UEFA added.
