Russia risks being thrown out of Euro 2016

Russia face being thrown out of Euro 2016 after UEFA slapped them with a suspended disqualification and a €150,000 fine. UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body met in Paris to consider the case and imposed the suspended disqualification and a €150,000 financial penalty.

Earlier this week UEFA warned both England and Russia they could be thrown out of the tournament.

A statement read:

“The UEFA Executive Committee has warned both football associations that – irrespective of any decisions taken by the independent disciplinary bodies relating to incidents inside the stadium – it will not hesitate to impose additional sanctions on the Football Association (FA) and the Russian Football Union (RFU), including the potential disqualification of their respective teams from the tournament, should such violence occur again. We urge both the FA and the RFU to appeal to their supporters to behave in a responsible and respectful manner.”

Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said the FA is treating the threat with the “utmost seriousness”.

He also added that:

“Violent scenes like those witnessed over the weekend in Marseille have no place in football, nor society as a whole.We want people – fans and locals – to feel safe and enjoy a festival atmosphere at the Euros and we will continue to work closely with all the relevant authorities to achieve that.”
