The Croatian Football Federation has been heavily fined by UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on Monday 20 June 2016…

UEFA launched disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian Football Federation following their UEFA EURO 2016 group stage match against the Czech Republic which ended 2-2 in Saint-Étienne on Friday when the match was stopped for over 5 minutes when a group in the hooligans set off flares and started fighting in the stands.

The charges bought against the Croatian Football Federation included setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, crowd disturbance, and racist behaviour, and on Monday the board imposed the following sanctions:

• A fine of €100,000
• To prohibit the HNS from selling tickets to certain fans (identified by the HNS and the Croatian authorities as hooligans) for the remainder of UEFA EURO 2016. This sanction is deferred under a probationary period until the end of the tournament.

Croatia next face Spain in Bordeaux on Tuesday night and police will have to be on high alert with rumours that a small group of hooligans will again be turning up with the sole purpose to cause trouble in the stands.
