West Ham United fans will be banned from attending their first away game of the Europa League season due to UEFA charges.
West Ham won their first European Cup since 1965 after defeating Fiorentina 2-1 in the Europa League final.
During the match at the Eden Arena in Prague, several objects were thrown onto the field and some fans entered the field after the final whistle.
Fiorentina defender Cristia Biraggi was left bleeding in the first half as cups and other objects rained down from the crowd.
After referee Carlos del Cerro Grande stopped the game briefly and stadium announcements asked fans to stop throwing things and “respect the players and the officials”, Biergi needed to have his head bandaged to continue.
West Ham have issued a statement that they will take action against anyone found to have committed an offense and ban them from attending matches at the London Stadium.
UEFA has confirmed that it will ban the sale of tickets for the first away Europa League game in 2023-24.
The UAF’s regulatory, ethical and disciplinary body confirmed that the club had been fined €50,000 plus a further €8,000 fine.
