UEFA hands England one-stadium ban for Euro 2020 Final unrest

UEFA has ordered England to play one match behind closed doors for the unrest that occurred after the Euro 2020 Final. England’s Football Association also suffered a fine of 100,000 Euros for the inability to maintain discipline, both outside and inside the stadium. The ban will affect England’s next national fixture at home in the Nations League on June 2022.

The debacle got created after England missed penalties versus Italy during the Final but the unrest’s seed got sown before the game as hundreds of spectators stormed Wembley without tickets. Ultimately, things got out of control when England lost the game to Italy on penalties and the agitated supporters made a ruckus, resulting in a stampede, which also resulted in broken ribs for the father of defender Harry Maguire.

Although we are disappointed with the verdict, we acknowledge the outcome of this Uefa decision. We condemn the terrible behaviour of the individuals who caused the disgraceful scenes in and around Wembley Stadium at the Euro 2020 final, and we deeply regret that some of them were able to enter the stadium. We are determined that this can never be repeated, so we have commissioned an independent review, led by Baroness Casey, to report on the circumstances involved. We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to take action against those responsible and hold them to account.
