England handed Wembley Stadium ban

UEFA’s disciplinary committee has ordered England to play one match behind closed doors.

The Three Lions have also been fined €100,000, following crowd trouble during the Euro 2020 final in July.

UEFA have also issued a ban for a second match, which is suspended for two years.

There were scenes of chaos at Wembley, as fans without tickets clashed with police and stewards, forcing their way into the stadium for the game against Italy.

The capacity for the England vs Italy match had been reduced to 60,000 from the usual 90,000 due to Covid-19 restrictions.

But as many fans gathered near the stadium on the afternoon of the match, stewards and police were left overwhelmed and unable to stop some storming through security cordons.

England’s next home match is a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Albania on November 12. However, the ban will not come into effect until next summer for the next UEFA-sanctioned match, with the new Nations League campaign beginning in June.
