Sanctions imposed on Russian Football Union

India Blooms News Service | | 14 Jun 2016, 10:15 pm
Nyon, June 14 (IBNS) The independent UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has met in Paris to deal with the disciplinary proceedings opened against the Russian Football Union (RFS) following the incidents which occurred inside the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille at the UEFA EURO 2016 match against England on 11 June (1-1).

Charges relating to crowd disturbances, use of fireworks and racist behaviour had been brought against the RFS, and the CEDB decided to impose the following sanctions:

• A fine of €150,000.

• A suspended disqualification of the Russian national team from UEFA EURO 2016 for the crowd disturbances. In accordance with Article 20 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations*, this disqualification is suspended until the end of the tournament. Such a 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.

The decision of the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is open to appeal.

This decision only relates to the incidents which occurred inside the stadium and are therefore under the jurisdiction of the UEFA Disciplinary Bodies.
