England set for Wembley stadium ban as UEFA consider punishment for Euro 2020 final crowd trouble
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has punished England for playing a match without spectators for mismanagement in the Euro Cup 2020 final.
According to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), England has been sentenced by UEFA to play one match without spectators and the other match to be canceled for two years due to mismanagement in the Euro Cup 2020 final.
The penalty will be applied to England by UEFA from England’s home match in the June 2022 League of Nations.
In addition, UEFA imposed a fine of 100,000 euros on the Football Association of England for failing to ensure discipline in and around the stadium.
“We are disappointed with this decision but we accept the decision of UEFA,” the Football Association said.
It may be recalled that in the Euro Cup final between Italy and England played at Wembley Stadium in London on July 11 this year, the spectators tried to enter the ground while fighting with the police.
